We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.
(2 Corinthians 5:20)
We are instruments for His will, tools in His hands.
We didn’t work in our own strength but always asked for power from He who saved us to do His good will. Before going door-to-door to talk to our neighbors each Saturday morning we gathered in prayer asking the Father to make us His excellent representatives.
As His ambassadors we were always respectful to everyone we met, and we sincerely communicated God’s message of love through Jesus.
As His ambassadors we were only interested in doing his work through His spirit and always prayed for the Spirit to move in the lives of those we met.
As His ambassadors we were never ashamed of the gospel, but spoke BOLDLY. We knew we couldn’t “talk” anyone into the kingdom, but always depend on His spirit to do His work. We are merely the clay vessels that carry the Word to a dying generation.
