Sharing Faith in Christ in my Sphere of Influence

2 Corinthians 5:20 - “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us. We plead on Christ’s behalf, ‘Be reconciled to God.’”

I have a friend that serves as an ambassador in a foreign country.  One day we were talking about his work and he shared how he had a “house” in another country but his “home” was in America. His work was to connect with foreign leaders and groups who could become hostile to the US Government. He developed relationships with these leaders in an attempt keep peace.

Unexplainable: Witness

Acts 4:13 “When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished, and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” 

Have you ever tried to do something nice and had it blow up in your face?  Maybe you tried to help a co-worker and they stepped on you as they climbed up the corporate ladder.  Maybe you tried to help a person carry groceries and they were suspicious of your motivations. Sometimes good actions can go unrewarded.

Unexplainable: Compassion

Acts 3: 6-7 “Then Peter said, ‘Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.’  Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong.”

Happy New Year

Revelation 21:5-6 “Behold, I make all things new.”  Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are faithful and true.”  And he told me, “It is done!  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.  To the thirsty I will give freely from the spring of the water of life…”

For many of us 2020 was a challenging year.  As we start a new year remember that one day God will make all things new.  I wish you the very best start to 2021 for you and your family.

Happy New Year!
