Ambassadors of Reconciliation
BE THE VEHICLE
In II Corinthians 5:18-20, the Bible tells us the following three things concerning Reconciliation. It tells us:
- God hath Reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ
- God hath given to us the Ministry of Reconciliation
- God hath committed unto us the Word of Reconciliation
And immediately following these three things as it relates to Reconciliation, the Bible says that we are Ambassadors for Christ. This means that the Church should not just make the world’s present condition more bearable; we need to give people new life in Jesus; the Power of God. Peter said to the lame man in Acts 3, “Such as I have, give I unto thee.” The lame man simply just wanted to be supported in the condition that he was in. but God wanted to make him whole.
It is my desire that this Ministry continues to be a vehicle that God uses to make people whole. As the Overseer of this Ministry, my heart’s prayer and desire for Macedonia and Christians everywhere is this, that we live in full expectation of God’s promises.
Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see. This means that our level of expecting God to show up in our lives to carry us, to lead us, to guide us, and to help make people whole, points directly to the amount of trust and faith that we put in Him.
As Ambassadors and Reconcilers, let us continue to earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto us and let us build up ourselves on our most holy faith, keeping ourselves in the love of God, as we live out life together in and through the Body of Christ.
