Brothers and sisters: Whoever is in Christ is a new creation: the old things have passed away; behold, new things have come. And all this is from God, who has reconciled us to himself through Christ and given us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting their trespasses against them and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. So we are ambassadors for Christ, as if God were appealing through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who did not know sin, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
We should be ambassadors for Christ. If we believe in Him, believe that He is truly God, we must work to change this world. We must work to change the hearts and minds of those who do not believe. Of those who pass laws that allows babies and older adults to be allowed to die for no reason, but they do not think they have any value. Do you think you are valuable? You are to God; His love is unending. And, His mercy is all encompassing. Like the prodigal son, we must come home, beg His forgiveness and Heaven will be rejoicing.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me when I speak of your love and mercy. Help me to bring your Good News to the world. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Taste and see the goodness of the Lord.
The joy of the Lord is my strength.
