Ambassadors for Christ

September 7, 2012

2Corinthians 5:20 says that we are Christ’s ambassadors.  We are his representatives sent to go speak to a lost and dying world; to warn them of the judgement that is to come and plead with them, beg them, urge them to get right with a holy and just God.

When thinking about being a representative I went back to my gymnastics days.  In 1996 I made the Women’s Junior International Gymnastics Team.  Each girl was given an assignment to represent the United States in an International Gymnastics Competition in Belgium.  I was beyond nervous, but I trained and I trained and I trained for this competition.  It was a very big responsibility and I wanted to represent my country well.

We as Christians represent the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the alpha and omega, the maker of the heavens and the earth.  WOW!  We have been given the awesome responsibility and privilege to go preach the Gospel and make disciples of all nations!  Can you even imagine any higher calling?  Can you imagine anything more important to give your life to?  The God who spoke the world into existence wants to use US to spread the message of salvation to a lost and dying world.  Are we going to obey?

We are in a war!  And in this war we are battling for the billions of souls that will either go to heaven or hell for eternity.  We don’t have time to waste.  Our lives are so short compared to eternity.  We must enlist in this war, put fear aside, and be the ambassadors we have been called to be!  We must train and fight and represent our King well for He alone is worthy!
