According to 2 Corinthians 5:18, 20 as NEW CREATIONS, we have been given an assignment, AMBASSADORSHIP, from the King of Glory and for the Kingdom of God.
“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and GAVE US the ministry of reconciliation, Therefore, we are AMBASSADORS for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
I have noticed over the years that when someone first enters new life in Christ there is a zeal that is unmatched. It is as if you cannot stop them from bubbling over and sharing the truth and freedom they have encountered. They don’t even have to be told that they have an assignment.
But, over the years LIFE HAPPENS, and as trials come and go, enthusiasm for the things of God often begins to wane. Weeds of worries begin choke out the assignment of ambassadorship.
Life can easily become routine, drudgery, a struggle for survival in the race (the rat race) of earthly life. If we pray, we mostly pray survival prayers instead of revival prayers.
There is great need for the honor of the ministry that the The King of Kings has given us to be recaptured, so joy can be rekindled. WE are the carriers of the message and the power of salvation, deliverance and healing. We have received His ministry. We have received the favor and approval of the King. We do not need the affirmation, or validation, from men to obey the instructions of the King.
Just as Jesus came to preach, proclaim and announce deliverance and favor (Luke 4:18-19) we are to do the same. Jesus was about His Father’s business. And we must be also.
We have “truth-treasures” that others have great need of….FREEDOM, VICTORY, FORGIVENESS, RELEASE FROM PAIN, purpose and a future.
Today and everyday ask God for at least one person in whom to plant a seed of truth.
