So we are ambassadors for Christ. God has given us a message to share throughout our lives. Whether we are newly-baptized or seniors, wherever we live in this world, we carry the news of God’s love and forgiveness. Our words may be spoken in any language. Our actions may be the tiniest of kindnesses or the largest of initiatives, shared with a single person or a crowd. When others look at us, they see in our faces, our actions, our words, the light of Christ’s redemption shining back at them.
Each day brings us new opportunities to share this message. As we sing in “Great Is Thy Faithfulness”, “Morning by morning, new mercies I see”. As ambassadors, each of us matters, for each of us faces different situations and individuals who need to hear the story of God’s eternal, forgiving love. May our messages guide them too to become ambassadors for Christ.
Let us pray. Dear God, fill me with the gratitude and excitement of your forgiving grace. Let each day of my life be another chapter of telling this great news to others through my thoughts, words, and actions. Amen.
