Ambassadors for Christ
As born again believers, we have an incredible privilege of taking the Gospel to the world. Sharing the Gospel isn't just for missionaries, pastors, evangelists, and Sunday school teachers; this task is for every born again Christian. We are all ambassadors for Christ, and we all have opportunities that God gives each of us to share the Gospel. There are people in your life that God has allowed you to cross paths to be a shining light and share with them about God's gift of salvation. People will reject you and may even tell you to never talk about Jesus to them again, but that should never deter you from continually sharing the Gospel to them. Jesus tells us to compel the lost, which means that some need compelling (Luke 14:16-24). Our lives also should be a shining light as a testimony of Jesus Christ to the lost, which means that our speech and actions should show that we are Christians. The disciples were noted for being with Jesus. Do the people around you know that you are a Christian? Does your life testify of being an ambassador of Jesus Christ?
And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:18-20 (KJV)
