The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Author: Jodie Montgomery

Read 2 Corinthians 5:19, 20

“That is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”

If I were to describe a typical day of my life, it would include getting out of bed (hopefully early rather than late), determining what to wear and taming my curls, making order out of chaos as I leave and return home, juggling time commitments on the job, several meal decisions, and a concentrated effort on doing something relaxing before the day ends. Unless I remember that I am on mission as God’s ambassador, I am not on mission. I want to be on mission. I want to be His representative. I know that is the key to abundant life. To be on mission means I must remember Who He is, who I am in Him and the mission…. I need the Gospel daily.

When I open my eyes each morning, it is good to read His Word. Listening to God reminds me that I am loved, I am reconciled to God through Christ and I have a message to share. It is the reconciled that have the word of reconciliation committed to them so that they may help others, including themselves, live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The reconciled are ambassadors for Christ. Join me on mission.
