JOYFUL BLESSINGS 06
I would love to encourage you to open up your Bible and back it up a few verses from today's verse in 2 Corinthians 5. Starting in verse 11, the title of the section (in NLT) reads "We Are God's Ambassadors." Because of Jesus, we are made new in Him. And this? It's a gift from God; a gift we are called to share with others! Read verse 20: "So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, "Come back to God." In this Advent season, we not only proclaim the coming of Jesus, but we plead for our hearts and the hearts of others to come back to Him. The King is coming! May it be so.
"For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ." 2 Corinthians 5:21
Dear Jesus, You are our coming King - the sinless, spotless, lamb of God. Thank you for the gift You have given me; a gift beyond words. Because of You, I am made right with God. May I always remember the depth of sacrifice Your offering is for me. Stir in me a heart bent on sharing the joy of the Gospel with others in my corner. Amen.
