Ambassador’s of the Kingdom of Heaven
II Corinthians 5:20-21 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. 21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Are you exercising the grace of the Holy Spirit?
II Corinthians 6:1-3We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:
Are you looking at your walk, do you see what others see? Is Christ living in you? Would this be what people say about you?
II Corinthians 6:4-10 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the amour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8By honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
As I minister to you and know most of you well, how do I see you?
II Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Leviticus 26:12; Zechariah 8:8
Paul throughout his epistles shows we are spiritual Israel by quoting OT and relating to us.
II Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. In reverence for what Yahushua has done, fear of Yahuweh.
There is nothing we can not over come. No evil either within us or in the world that affects us. His Holy Spirit makes us more than conquers if by faith we trust him, submit, resist that which we know is wrong.
Perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
I John 3:1-3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knows us not, because it knew him not. 2Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. 3And every man that hath this hope in him purifying himself, even as he is pure.
Father in our daily confession and remembrance of Yahushua’s blood shed for us; let us move to perfecting holiness within ourselves; guided by Your Spirit of truth confessing our short coming, patiently waiting for the hope of salvation while love abounds in us towards others reflecting Your Son in us as ambassadors of Your kingdom. HalleluYah.
