2 Corinthians 5:17-21 When someone becomes a Christian he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same any more. A new life has begun!
All these new things are from God who brought us back to himself through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into his favor and be reconciled to him. For God was in Christ, restoring the world to himself, no longer counting men's sins against them but blotting them out. This is the wonderful message he has given us to tell others. We are Christ's ambassadors. God is using us to speak to you: we beg you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, receive the love he offers you__be reconciled to God. For God took the sinless Christ and poured into him our sins. Then in exchange, he poured God's goodness into us.
What good news that is: We are free in Christ and significant. This has made us ministers of reconciliation for God. How often have we not spoken up because of fear, fear of rejection, fear of being wrong in our beliefs, fear of saying wrong, fear of speaking about God out of turn or thinking that we weren't called or it wasn't our gift or position to speak. Precious ones, that is a lie from our soul's enemy.
Let's put on our new ambassador clothing and start with a prayer every morning, that we could speak the truth and the truth would set others free. You remember how wonderful it was to meet Christ and get cleaned up? We want that for others too. Freedom in Christ. We want to see them enjoy our wonderful waters and share the love of Christ and yes, go to heaven as a family member. I have found a wonderful fellow author, her name is Ann Tatlock and her website is http://www.anntatlock.com/index.html Her passion in writing is all about the truth and love of Jesus. I pray that this week, you will be blessed under the falls of love and would be dripping onto others as they cry out for truth in such a mixed up world. Remember precious ones, Satan will always give a little truth in his big lies just to try to trip others up. We need to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves.
Be blessed precious warriors.
