Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:20
This verse clearly states that even in my mature years, I am an ambassador for Christ. God makes his appeal to family, friends, and neighbors through me. It makes sense when God uses vibrant, energetic, young people to tell his story. But weary old me? The Bible assures me, yes, even when my energy is not like younger years. He tells me to carry his message of reconciliation to others. I am equipped with the joy and wisdom gained through trials and experiences.
God sends the Holy Spirit to strengthen and enliven me with the right attitude, words, and actions. I am blessed to be his voice, his heart, his hands, and his feet.

Dear Jesus, help me to be a loving ambassador for you and your ministry of reconciliation to all I know. Amen.
Reflect: How can we further God’s message of love and forgiveness?
