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.

In 2 Corinthians, scripture says that we are to function in a similar way. When we accept Christ as our savior we become ambassadors for Jesus!  In his book Living Proof Jim Petersen wrote, “We are the first account of the gospel that most people will ever read. Either they will desire more, having read us, or they will decide that there is nothing there for them.”

How about you?  Think about your personal sphere of influence. Who has God put in your life that is open to God?  Think about your digital sphere of influence. Are you a good ambassador for Christ on the internet?
