Ambassador of Reconciliation….Has the Father Reconciled You To Himself Through the Blood of His Son, Witnessed and Testified by the Power of His Spirit?
As ambassadors of Christ we have been given the ministry of reconciliation. It begins and ends with God. In response to HIS gift in JESUS CHRIST loving humanity while we were yet sinners CHRIST died for us. All things are being reconciled by the blood of HIS CROSS. Empowered by the Spirit of God through grace alone, we are distributors of mercy for we have received much mercy. We are called to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul and mind and love our neighbor as ourselves. A new commandment was given unto us, that we love one another, as Christ has loved us, that we also love one another. By this shall all men know that we are disciples of Jesus, if we have love one for another.
“Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” II Corinthians 5:16-21
