2 Corinthians 5:18-21

ow all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ's behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

The all things of God include placing us as Ambassadors of His Reconciliation. Let that soak in for a few moments. And couple it with the last sentence of this selection. “ For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him”

Is it a fair interpretation to read that you and I are named to the Court of the LORD, God, the Almighty as Ambassadors of that Court so that you and I can represent the transforming power of the Cross of Jesus Christ?

Does that transforming power show through me in every aspect of my life?
