PRAYER: Lord we ask that you will help us to be ambassadors for You. Help us to invite those to Your praise party. May souls be saved and lives transformed and changed.
VERSE OF THE DAY: 2 Corinthians 5:20; 6:1-10
Having the heart of Christ means just that, having a heart that is willing to reach out and touch the heart of others. There are so many who are hurting who do not have a clue of who Christ is. Christians are ambassadors for Christ. This means that we view the heavens and the earth as a kingdom and those who are apart of this kingdom have accepted Christ to be their personal Lord and Savior. Ambassadors are a reflection and a representation of their kingdom. So this means, that to be an ambassador of Christ you represent the true and living God. You are a reflection of Him in your thinking, in your appearance, in your actions, and more. All of these things make up being an ambassador for Christ. So, what do ambassadors do to be exact? Whenever you enter a church you generally enter a praise party. This means that you are celebrating the life, birth, death, and resurrection of Christ while receiving daily instructions and teachings on how to live and survive during trying times.
When you are an ambassador for Christ it is your responsibility to invite others to the praise party. It is your responsibility to introduce them to the host and servers of the party. The host generally being the pastor and the servers usually being the ministers and leaders. You don’t have to introduce them physically, although it is nice, but introducing can be viewed in this context as exposing one to something that is unfamiliar or unknown to them. In doing so you are able to give the person in whom you invited an opportunity to continue to come to the praise party’s being hosted or you can give them the opportunity to become an ambassador for Christ as well. Do keep in mind that becoming an ambassador for Christ does require some levels of training but furthermore it requires you being the best version of you at a broken state striving to be more Christlike. You don’t have to be someone you are not. You simply have to be yourself and simply introduce others to have the personal relationship with Christ that you have. Being an ambassador for Christ is a privilege and an honor. Make sure that your lifestyle is a reflection of Christ and make sure that it encourages others to follow Christ and not turn away from Him. I pray that this has blessed you as much as it has blessed me. Remember to invite, text, tweet, tell somebody about the goodness of Christ and what He means to you. Spread the word and share the gospel.
