Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 5:20

Our sacred obligation is to be ambassadors for Christ. It  is a pleasure to represent our blessed Lord Jesus Christ! The  original words begin in this manner: "IN BEHALF OF  CHRIST ... " Think of it! Phil. 1:29 allows us to see this great  truth. Is it not Paul who testifies, -" .. .1 am what I am by the  grace of God"? He certainly acted in Christ's behalf.

Each born-again believer is God's ambassador, whether  he knows it or not. It is immediate, as soon as our relationship  with Christ begins. If we fail to obey Paul's beseeching in  Romans 12:1, we will not know the will of God in Romans 12:2.

Then, as time moves on, how we wear the yoke of  ambassadorship is important. Paul had trouble with this. He  nearly despaired on one occasion (II Corinthians 1:8). Andrew  Murray of South Africa spoke of this by saying, "We need to  adapt to the yoke, instead of rebelling against it." It will wear  well if we do so. If we do not, it chafes and irritates.

Imagine an ambassador who doesn't know the will of the  one who sent him. Do you represent Christ's will in this  strange land?

 How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
