The role of ambassadors is to reflect the official position of their sovereign Ruler who, via His Holy Spirit, gives all authority and full power to these representatives. In other words, the goal of ambassadors for Christ is—with the aid of the Holy Spirit—to reflect the official position (to preach the Kingdom of God’s Gospel Message) of the King (Father God) and the Lord (Christ Jesus) who are in Heaven.
This New Year, as we turn over a new leaf and hope to do better, I pray that our Lord’s presence and guidance will be with us all, as we face the future. With every uncertainty of life that lies ahead of us, I pray that our Lord will continue to assure us of His unchanging love while kindling within us our faith in His hope and plan for our future.
If we are not willing to do good works for good works’ sake, as opposed to doing good works because we want our works to be praised by men and women, then we are not true Body of Christ believers. If we are not willing to put our own reputations, lives, and/or personal possessions/money on the line to help anyone who has been labeled as too far-gone to help, then we are not true Body of Christ believers.
