A Bigger Honor

Your Home is an Embassy. A devotional choice with my You Version app.

2 Corinthians 5:20  (NLT) 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”  source

We are His ambassadors.  

A diplomatic official of the highest rank appointed and accredited as representative in residence by one government or sovereign to another, usually for a specific length of time.  source 

What do you see?
Diplomat. Official. Highest rank appointed. Representative. In residence. Specific length of time. 

Sounds impressive doesn’t it?

2 Corinthians 5:20  (NLT) 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!source

Are you thinking what I’m thinking? This verse deserves more attention than I have given it! 

It’s serious. It’s official. It’s an honor. It’s a calling. It’s a big deal. Perhaps some of the things we would say about being an Ambassador on foreign soil for the United States of America, wouldn’t we?

Well. 2 Corinthians 5:20 is from a tad (you know that tad is a tongue in cheek to the nth degree) higher authority than the US – wouldn’t you agree?  

Again! This verse, This Ambassadorship, deserves more attention than I have given it! I need an attitude adjustment – I think I’m getting it!  Feel free to ask the Sovereign LORD if your Ambassadorship needs some reevaluating too. 

It’s a bigger honor than I have valued it! 

There is more here than my little fingers can get on this screen today!  And certainly more than my brain can wrap its embracing around at this moment! But it sure is exciting!! 🙂

Like He is making His appeal through us!  – For another day, Lord willing.
