DAY 3 SATURDAY: AUGUST 2019

A CHRISTIAN IS CALLED INTO RECONCILLIATORY MINISTRY!

Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).

God has called every Christian into the ministry of reconciliation through Christ Jesus. The Bible tells us in the opening text that now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he had been called into the ministry of reconciliation forever.

The ministry of reconciliation is all about peace and ambassadorship; hence, you are here as Jesus Christ’s representative, reconciling men, women, youths and children back to God. That is why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:20, “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God was pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.” Therefore, a Christian is Jesus Christ’s ambassador of peace reconciling the dying world to God. Hence, every Christian is a peacemaker forever (Matthew 5:9).

A Christian should take note of the fact that he is called and qualified by His grace to preach the message of reconciliation to all and sundry. That is the reason why Apostle Paul said in Ephesians 3:8 thus, “To me, who am less than the least of all the saints, this grace was given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.” In fact, God has indeed given every Christian the grace to preach the message of reconciliation to everyone through the unsearchable riches of Jesus Christ. God called and qualified you as a Christian by His grace to become an ambassador of peace forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is called and qualified by His grace into the ministry of reconciliation; therefore, he should forever be grateful to God and win souls into His kingdom. Shalom!

Golden Text: Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9).
