I want to welcome old and new friends to the Ambassador Friendship Club, a safe place to grow in faith and friendship.
Years ago, when I first discovered Strong’s Concordance I was excited to learn I could search out topical themes from scripture. This BLOG is designed to be a meeting place to study themes which relate to building Christian community and experiencing the Presence of God in our daily lives.
A: Starting with Ambassador
We are called to invite others to experience the Love of God and to be reconciled to God through Christ.
2 Corinthians 5: 14-15, 17-21 (NIV)
For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
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. Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
