πŸ‘‘ Ambassadors For Christ

β€œNow then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God” (2 Cor.Β 5:20).

Such a glorious message as reconciliation must at all cost be taken without haste to the unsaved masses. This is precisely what God did when HeΒ commissionedΒ us asΒ ambassadorsΒ for Christ. I read some time ago that in the Roman empire there were two types of provincesβ€” senatorial and imperial. The senatorial provinces were peaceful for the most part, and never caused Rome any problem. This could not be said of the imperial ones, for they were dangerous and frequently rebelled against the empire. It was to the imperial provinces that Rome sent ambassadors to help ease tension and announce the emperor’s objectives. They were some of the first diplomats in the truest sense of the term.

In the present evil age in which we live, the world is an imperial province that has nothing but contempt for God. In the midst of this tumult, God has sent in His ambassadors to offer amnesty to the world’s weary warriors of rebellion.

What an honor it would be to be chosen by the President of the United States to serve our country as an ambassador in a foreign land. Every ambassador seems to have three outstanding characteristics. First, they always lookΒ presentable. Secondly, they areΒ dignified, and finally, they areΒ well informedΒ as to the goals of the commander in chief. If this is true in the affairs of men, how much more so as we represent Christ in His absence. Many in the world are dull of hearing and therefore need to hear again that God loves them and has reconciled them unto Himself. Unlike the Great Commission given to Israel, our commission does not concern nations, but individuals within the nations. Begin by committing the word of reconciliation to your loved ones, and remember that the mission field extends into foreign lands as well.

A Herculean task lies before us to spread theΒ word of reconciliation. And may it ever be before us that β€œβ€¦if one died for all, then were all dead.” Can it be truthfully said thatΒ allΒ who have been born of the woman are born in sin and therefore spiritually dead? Then as the apostle says, Christ died for allΒ without exceptionΒ (2 Cor.Β 5:14,15). Yes, Christ died for you! β€œNow is the accepted time,Β NOW IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.” How many would you say have died in the last 24 hours around the world?Β TomorrowΒ death may tap you on the shoulder and say, β€œYour hour has come.” Time is of the essence; to receive God’s wonderful offer of reconciliation, simply believe that Christ died forΒ yourΒ sinsΒ personallyΒ and rose again the third day forΒ yourΒ justification. Do it today, eternity awaits. source
