Text of the Day

 

 

 

AUGUST 13

 

We are ambassadors for Christ—2. Cor. 5:20.

 

 If we as Christians could keep this thought always prominent before our minds, what a dignity it would add to our character! what a transforming power it would be! what an assistance to the new nature in its battle with the low and groveling tendencies of the old nature now disowned by us and reckoned dead! “Our citizenship is in heaven,” says the Apostle. While still living in the world, we are not of it but have transferred our allegiance and citizenship to the heavenly Kingdom. . .  And now, as appointees of our Kingdom, while still living in the world among aliens and strangers, we as representatives and ambassadors should feel both the dignity and the honor of the position and the weighty responsibilities and ever keep in memory the Apostle’s words, “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed do all in the name of the Lord Jesus.
