Be Still Know

READ: 2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NLT

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

If you have ever visited an embassy you will know what a strange experience it is. Suddenly you find yourself in another country: it’s weird! In an instant everything changes and you find yourself looking at pictures of Royalty or the Head of State and listening to a different language from the street outside. That is of course the whole point of an embassy which intentionally represents a different country.

Paul tells us that’s our job. We are ambassadors of a different country because we represent the Kingdom of God. And, in common with all ambassadors, we have messages to share. Ambassadors are carefully trained so that they can faithfully represent the views of their government and forge strong relationships with the country to which they have been posted. And that precisely describes our role. This world is not our home. We are just passing through and so in all that we say and do we need to ensure that we are being faithful representatives of God and his kingdom.

Our key role as God’s ambassadors is to pass on a message of reconciliation. God sent Jesus into the world to give us the opportunity to have our sins forgiven and to enter into a relationship with him. We now need to pass on that message in our ambassadorial role. It’s a simple and clear message. “Come back to God!” To be trusted to be an ambassador of any sort is awesome, but to be called to be an ambassador for God is as good as it gets. Wherever you go today and whatever you do, remember that before anything else you are God’s ambassador.

QUESTION: In what ways will you be able to represent the Kingdom of God today?

PRAYER: Lord God I thank you that you sent Jesus into this world in order to forgive our sins and bring us into a relationship with you. Help me to be a good ambassador today and to help people to see that you are eager to enter into a relationship with them as well. Amen.
