Introducing

This Series is a VERY special one for me, not only because of the peoples lives that were touched in the process of developing it, but by our identifying ourselves with the special group we call the “Ambassadors Sunday School Class”!  Be very sure you have all your happenings around you settled because this one will catch you by total surprise – not by what is written, but rather the conviction is will stir up inside of you by way of the Holy Spirit.  Consider yourself warned…

Do you know of anyone that is alone?  Perhaps you are the only person that knows they are…  What if you are that person, would you want someone else to know?  Could it be possible that the person you just had come to your mind doesn’t know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour?  Or is it that they have been so discouraged by time and so many events that they have forgotten Who He is?

These are difficult questions, which can have so many different facets to ponder…  My purpose in asking them is to challenge you to be an Ambassador for Christ, one who will pray, one who will go to where they are, one who will actively seek to Encourage – that person who is alone…  We are to be faithful ministers (each one of us) as we seek to Encourage others, for we truly can only see on the outside, where God knows the heart.

Even if all we can do is be an Encourager, being faithful to be directed by the Holy Spirit, to deliver God’s Word to those persons we are convicted to do so.  They are the ones who will have to want to rise up from where they are; we cannot.  It matters not what the challenge is or where they find themselves, we each can Encourage.

Please consider being that Ambassador For Christ to all those you come in contact with, especially to that special one who came across your mind who you know is alone.

Scriptures

The main basis comes from the verses surrounding and including II Corinthians 5:20 | KJV, which is highlighted in olive green for our review.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21 | King James Version

Most people equate “reconciliation” with sin, wrongdoing or unacceptable behavior.  In this sense it is presenting the process of being “reconciled” as in tune with, conforming completely or aligning ourselves fully and completely.  Interestingly enough it is talking about being a witness to everyone, whether you know them or not — but let us consider something very specific: it is a “relationship”.  Having a relationship indicates the impression of knowing someone, hence my challenge to each of us about that person who is alone.

The least item to be considered, is also the most powerful, so the notion that is brought to light is least we should do is being in our MOST power God.  To beseech, in the place of Christ being right amongst us, we have to be in that right relationship which we are praying for others to become or return to from a time ago.

Notice something with me which can be easily overlooked, which I am afraid is done more often than us grasping it for our good.  The verse says:

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ

The verse does NOT say:

Now then we are to be ambassadors to Christ

It specifically says “we ARE Ambassadors FOR Christ” – no wiggle room here, we are here to represent HIM and pray for those individuals as if we were Christ for THEM.  This alone should prompt us to want to make sure that our prayers go higher than just the ceiling of the room where we might throw together some words.  Christ prayed to the Father a few times recorded for us in agony, but always in full submission.
