Linking with Tuesday at Ten
We are Christ’s Ambassadors
Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,… 2 Corinthians 5 16-18
Every spring I love going barefoot, as a child I would ask mom if I could go barefoot and my mom would tell me I could go barefoot after I caught my first butterfly. Butterflies signify spring and things that are new.
I love the smell of the day after the rain, a brand new car, a baby after his or her bath, all signaling the newness of the moment.
Easter just occurred and we have the newness to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. We are all ministers of reconciliation. Christ reconciled us to him by dying on the Christ and then being raised from the dead. Christ who knew no sin became sin so that we might have the forgiveness of sin.
Do you know Jesus as your Savior?
New, we are new in Christ everyday.
Beloved, have you caught your butterfly?
