The Old Has Gone

 

How important do you think you are?

Extremely important?

Very important?

Not important at all?

What if you were working for a courier company and you were transporting medication to a children’s hospital….would you feel important then?

Suppose you were a meteorologist working at a weather station that gave the initial warnings for severe weather….would you feel important?

If you were a lifeguard working at a popular beach ready at any moment to save someone from drowning, would you feel important?

All three of these endeavors are honorable and you would have every reason to feel that you were performing a worthy service by delivering medicine, warning the public of severe weather or rescuing swimmers from drowning.

Knowing this high calling in your life, you would most likely have a healthy self-respect. If you really knew in your heart that your life mattered, you would be less likely to mistreat yourself by making destructive life choices.

But what if you were a highly significant ambassador?  What then?

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!  All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.  God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.–II Corinthians 5:17-21

We are the ambassadors of Jesus as we tell others about what He has done for us. We are entrusted with the message of eternal hope.  Without Jesus, all are lost.

As an ambassador of the risen Son of God, how important do you think you are?

Extremely important?

Very important?

Not important at all?
