Whose Ambassador Are You?
Exodus 3:14; 1 Corinthians 1:17-21;
We believers are ambassadors representing the Eternal I AM (LORD, YAHWEH). We are in-dwelt by the Holy Spirit. God The Holy Spirit is unified with God The Father and God The Son so all the fullness OF GOD indwells us bodily. We are sent into the world to reveal what God is like as his ambassadors (ponder John 17:18).
We carry the powerful resource of God’s character into the world as we represent Him. Consider His character: He is the LORD who provides not only a redeeming sacrifice but He provides the Way, the Truth, and the Life giving us immediate access to Himself (Genesis 22:13, 14; John 14:6). He is the LORD who heals us physically and spiritually (Exodus 15:26,; John 9:1-12;35-37). The LORD is our victory banner (Exodus 17:8-15; Galatians 5:16, 24, 25; 2 Timothy 2:21,22). He is peace (Judges 6:24). The LORD provided the sacrifice for our peace and the possibility for peace with our fellow man (Romans 5:1,2; Ephesians 2:14,15; Colossians 1:20; Romans 12:18). The LORD is our righteousness (Jeremiah 23:6) and The LORD is always there (Ezekiel 48:35; Matthew 28:20). These are only a few examples of the LORD’s character. As you read the Scriptures and see other examples take note of them and write them down.
We have access to all the resources we need to represent the King. I believe, if we believers deeply understood the Eternal I AM indwells us we would sin less and be better representatives of the Kingdom. We are, after all, part of the Royal Family, a Kingdom of Priests. The question is: What kind will we be? Will you join me in choosing to daily walk in the Spirit?
I represent The Eternal I AM as His ambassador to a lost world; I can courageously accomplish all He wills me to do. – Pastor Bob Wood is a Seasonal Camper at America’s Keswick and a discipler of men. Email him at Dsprayer@aol.com
Think About This: The loving service which God sends His people into the world to render includes both evangelism and social action, for each is in itself an authentic expression of love, and neither needs the other to justify it. John R. W. Stott
This Week’s Verse to Memorize: But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
