Corinthians 5:20

We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Scripture Insights

Your job in God’s family is to invite others to join the family. In fact, you are an ambassador of Christ. That means that , everywhere you go, you represent Jesus. You may be thinking, I am way under-qualified for this role; it’s not my gift,
or perhaps you struggle to find the confidence you need to tell people about the hope we have in Jesus.

Would it encourage you to know that we all have similar questions and struggles? Most people have a hard time knowing—and an even harder time articulating—what they really believe. These are great opportunities to truly help. Listen and pray for the key that will open someone’s heart to Jesus.

You are not alone when you tell other people about God’s plan of salvation through Jesus. God is with you, and God is also working in the other person’s heart while the Holy Spirit uses you.

I am so glad someone was willing to step out for me, and what an honor it is to do the same for others.

Today’s Prayer

God, we thank you ahead of time for the divine appointments you put in our path. For the people you have placed in our lives who are looking for long-term answers, give us the boldness and confidence to share your truth with love and grace.
