An Ambassador of Peace – Identity in Christ Part 8

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:20-21)

It is amazing that God chooses to use broken and flawed people to bring His glorious good news of restoration to the world. You were called to be an ambassador to bring the good news of God’s salvation to lost souls.

The fields are ready for harvesting and you have an important mission to accomplish! Be ready to sow the seed of the gospel through the power of the Spirit and see what He will accomplish through your obedience. Are you unsure about how to share the good news of Jesus Christ? This series on the Gospel may help.

Study it Out

Read the following passages slowly and meditate on the truths found within. You may want to commit one or more passages to memory.

John 4:35-38; Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21

Be sure to respond to God as He reveals or reminds you of truths about Himself. Every time you read God’s Word, God’s Spirit is inviting you to enter into a conversation with Him. Breathe in His truth with a humble, teachable heart, and breathe out your response of praise, thanksgiving, confession, and repentance as is fitting.

There is so much more to learn about God as your Father and all the treasure you have been given in Him! Spend the rest of your life breathing in His grace and breathing out your praise to Him. One day your faith will be sight, and you will get to enjoy spending eternity with your Savior and forever family!

The Corresponding Image

Each truth given corresponds with one of the images in the original Identity of Christ design. These are available as downloadable coloring sheets or downloadable, customized prints that can be hung as decor in your home or office.

The wheat should remind you that there is a whole harvest of souls. Pray that God would provide laborers and do your part as one of those laborers to spread His truth and hope.
