We are Ambassadors. Just as an earthly kingdom or nation would have an Ambassador, so too Christ has representatives of his Heavenly Kingdom. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 Our Ministry is one of Reconciliation - we are to spread the Word of Reconciliation (how that God wants men to be Reconciled to Him, through his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ). 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 [proclaim] 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.
My wife and I regularly sing in Church; And there is a song, that she has suggested that we sing called, “just one more soul”; But I have been against the idea, because I just didn’t like this song. And this morning the Lord has shown me why “I don’t like it”: Because it is UnBiblical; In several ways. Here is a line from the first verse.... “The preachers are weary, the singers are tired”: For one thing, if this is the case in your Church, than the preachers and singers, need to either find some other ministry to do(one God is calling them to), or they need to get saved. Because doing things in the Spirit, will not be wearisome. But the next line, just might be right.... “The Church as we know it, is losing its fire” For sure, when members of a local Church are “laboring in the flesh”, they will lose God’s fire! And the last line of the first verse, gives the wrong response to this problem..... “But we must determine to keep pressing on”! If your laboring in the flesh, “more labor” is not the answer! Jesus said...... "Come unto me, all [ye] that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28) ------------------------ Sure enough, there is some “work” involved, in staying close to the Lord; Such as Prayer and Bible study and Church attendance! But, the fruit of this labor, is learning to follow the Lord’s instructions: And His instructions are not Burdensome! They are fun!
A warning for Christian ladies: this post may be inappropriate for you. Make sure to get a permission from your husband or pastor before you attempt to read this post in its whole. One of the affiliates of my church specializes in preaching to various deviants, including preaching at California nude beaches. He believes that, where appropriate and useful, such manner is justified by Isaiah's ministry. I'm not sure I completely agree, especially when it comes to ministering to satanic women, of which there are plenty at such venues. Nevetheless, he does lead people to Salvation. Here's one letter to his ministry that he shared with us:
