Ambassadors to Christ

2 Corinthians 5:20 teaches us that we are ambassadors to Christ, but what does that mean? It means as Christians we represent Christ. We are united with Christ and He is tugging on the strings of our heart. Through the blood of Jesus we are the righteousness of God. That does not mean we are perfect but rather that God does not look upon the sin of those who trust in Jesus. The Lord is perfecting us in Him which is a lifelong process, and He is cleaning and purifying us. “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18” The Isaiah passage is telling us that we are seen as dirty sinners but God does not look upon our sin rather He helps us become free from our sin and makes them as white as snow. I am thankful that although we are not perfect that through the salvation Jesus has given we are seen as clean before God. As, a result we can have confidence in the gift of eternal life. Amen
