More Than Bread Devotional for 10/31/11

18All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.   – 2 Corinthians 5:18-20

God’s desire is to reconcile the world to Himself.  He wants to see all men turn from their own ways and turn to Him, and He has taken this vital message and mission and entrusted it to. . . us.  We are His ambassadors, His representatives.  We carry this message of God’s reconciliation with us as we ourselves have been reconciled.  We comfort others as we have been comforted.  God doesn’t ask you to speak about the things you do not know about; but He expects you to speak and testify about the things you have experienced.  Tell your story today.
