What Do They See?

August 1, 2011

2 Corinthians 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ…

I heard an interesting quote yesterday…”All that many will ever know of God—really—is what they know of us” that was a hard quote to hear. Then it was immediately followed by the verse above. We, of course, know that we are God’s light, His “ambassadors”; there are many references to it in scripture. Yet, how often do we allow that thought to guide our everyday lives.  Or do we put our lives in boxes never letting God or His word to rule any of them but the box containing church? When truthfully it should permeate each and every aspect of our lives from how we act at Wal-Mart to how we conduct ourselves in business. One of the many things I admire about Terry and Nick is that how they conduct Precision Assembly is the exact same way they conduct themselves at church, in their home, in every situation. The reason for this is that these men allow God’s word to flow through and effect them; those men who work for them even though they may never darken the door to church are being introduced in God daily through the lives of these men. Reading God’s word takes more than simply putting your eyes on the pages; reading God’s word means you have to allow it to change you. If it never changes you; it will become stale to you and easy to avoid. How well do we live as “Christ’s Ambassadors”?
