Praise the Lord for another day and another chance to move forward with the message of peace and salvation. As I sit here giving Honor to God and our Veterans on the day set aside to do so, I can’t help but think of how divided the USA is at this very moment. Then I’m reminded in my spirit of the important job we have to carry out as disciples and apostles of God. Press into Him for a while longer this morning before you go rushing off and let Him give you your instructions for your forward movement.

Today’s Prayer

Father, Every morning after studying Your Word I pray and ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance for the day, and for our lives. Usually, we are in a hurry and we don’t often wait for Your answers. But this morning I waited, and then these words came to me: “Accept each day’s challenges! Remember that I have promised to be with you always! Trust Me! I am closer than you can ever imagine!” Oh Lord, if we step out in faith and trust You, You will be with us, ready to guide and help and strengthen us. Your answer may not be just what we had in mind, but remind us that You see the bigger picture; You know what we need. Help us to recognize our blessings, and to thank You each day. You are trustworthy; help us to be that way too! It’s in the wonderful name of Jesus that I present this and all things, Amen and Amen.

Let’s eat.

We Are God’s Ambassadors

2 Corinthians 5:11-21

Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too. Are we commending ourselves to you again? No, we are giving you a reason to be proud of us, so you can answer those who brag about having a spectacular ministry rather than having a sincere heart. If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit. Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them. So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.


The Christian life is the life of the Lord Jesus Christ lived two thousand years ago, lived now by Him in you! ~W. Ian Thomas~
