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 CnCorinthians 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
