The harvest is ripe – free tools to help you share the gospel with others.
“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” [Appeal means to: make a serious, urgent, or heartfelt request.] “Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others to turn to him.” 2 Corinthians 5:11, 20 (NLT).
According to this Bible verse, you are an Ambassador for Jesus Christ: a chosen, anointed Ambassador for Christ! He works through you as His representative to make His desire known as in Acts 26:18, “To open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins”. (NIV) Understanding my, and your mission carries a joyful, yet solemn responsibility!
Blockages that can hold us back from being a proactive Ambassador for Christ.
Wrong mindsets can prevent us from being a productive Ambassador for Christ.
These are some mindsets that will keep you from obeying the Word of God:
- Insecurity and inferiority opens the door to the enemy’s lie, “I’m not good enough”.
- Fear of failure and rejection opens the door to the enemy’s accusations: “Talk about their need of salvation and they will reject you.” OR “Who are you to talk about God, they will not listen to you.”
I struggled for many years with a low self-esteem, having been humiliated as a young child by my schoolteacher. I never felt good enough and lived in fear of not being accepted. This is called inner shame! When I understood that Jesus identified with my shame when he was stripped naked, before His crucifixion and upon the Cross, I was able to give those feelings to Him. Now, instead of wearing a cloak of shame, I embrace what had already been given me when I became God’s child, a robe of righteousness. I now know that I do not need to perform to get God’s acceptance or worry about anyone else’s acceptance to feel good about myself, for my identity is in the fact that I am God’s child, unconditionally accepted and loved by my Heavenly Father.
- Passivity opens the door to the enemy’s lie, “I’m not an evangelist. Therefore, I don’t have to talk to people about their need of a Saviour, leave that to someone who’s better at it”.
- Ignorance opens the door to the enemy’s lie, “Your friends and family are good-living people they will not go to hell.”
All lies of the enemy must be rejected and replaced with the truth of God’s Word.
Not feeling ‘whole’ can prevent us from being a proactive Ambassador for Christ.
Jesus said to the invalid of 38 years at the pool of Bethesda, “Do you want to be made whole?”. John 5:6
Do you feel frustrated, like the man at the pool of Bethesda? Jesus is asking you today, “Do you want to be made whole?”. You can overcome being a victim of your current circumstances. You can be free from the pain and injustice of life today like the lady in the following story.
A lady come to us who was facing the possibility of divorce. She felt trapped in an abusive marriage. She shared painful memories of her past and was made whole by Jesus. Her husband, who was against God and religion, saw the change in her, came the following week and became a child of God.
Read on, for Jesus wants to make you whole too! He wants you to become a proactive Ambassador for Him!
Doubt and unbelief will also prevent us from being an active and productive Ambassador for Christ.
When we were missionaries for many years in Ethiopia, I noted that the Ethiopians, who worshiped many demonic gods, readily believed when they heard God’s Word, and received His gift of grace. They prayed and enthusiastically shared with their friends and family their new-found truth after encountering the power of great Creator God. That is how we were able to see thousands come to Christ and 250 churches established. Upon returning to Australia, instead of simply believing God’s Word, in simplicity of faith, I found that, over time, I began to doubt and reason whether God would come through. It is our intellectual culture to reason, instead of trusting God unequivocally. I have sought forgiveness several times over the years for not trusting completely in His faithfulness!
In Mark 9:22-24 we read of a distraught father pleading with Jesus to help his troubled son. Jesus assures him, “Anything is possible if a person believes”. The father acknowledges his doubt after the disciples were not able to help him and cries out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” (NLT). Perhaps you too have allowed doubt to creep in when you haven’t seen your friends and family coming to Jesus. Maybe it is the cry of your heart to Father God today, “I do trust you, but help me trust you more!”.
