“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21Text — 2 Corinthians 5:20,21
God places His children in the places they are for a specific kingdom purpose -to promote His righteousness. To do I this, a friend of Jesus must continue to live a righteous life in all things and at all times. Wherever you are, remember that you are Christ’s ambassador. An ambassador is a person who represents his/her country in a foreign land. Ambassadors endeavour to live in a way that will not destroy or tarnish the image of their countries.
Likewise, as an ambassador of Christ, your life must show Who God is – Holy and Righteous. Do not hide your Christian identity anywhere you find yourself, remember that God is watching you. Your life (dressing, speech, association) must preach the gospel of reconciliation of men to God. Jesus must be proclaimed as the Mediator between God and man. You are God’s spokesperson, so speak for Him. Some people were commended in the Bible for being diligent in the things of God, they were faithful ambassadors. God is depending on you to play your part now.
Prayer for today
God, help me to be a worthy ambassador who will promote your righteousness everywhere I go.
