Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 5:19-20
In this present age of grace we, as members of His Body, are appointed emissaries of Jesus Christ. "God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Nowthen we are ambassadors for Christ" (II Corinthians 5:19-20).
The apostle Paul charged his son in the faith Timothy, "Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season .... Do the work of an evangelist" (II Timothy 4:2,5). We Body members today are the believing remnant in this dispensation of His grace; thus, these instructions are automatically passed on to us as the only voice of the Savior in the world. Paul pleads with us, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service"
The word that we are to preach is The Gospel ofthe Grace of God-Paul's gospel. Lest there be any doubt of this, the apostle minces no words: "Though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8). Paul is our apostle; his gospel is our gospel; his ministry is our ministry. He has these words of admonition for us as laborers for Christ: "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report ... think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do" (Philippians 4:8-9).
