You are a Minister of Reconciliation

You are a minister of reconciliation! We reconcile people to God!

“Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” 2 Corinthians 5:18-20 NASB

Someone commented on my blog post “You are a Citizen of Heaven” that we are ambassadors for Christ because we live in a place that is not our home. We have another city waiting for us in heaven, and that’s where we truly belong, not here. We are therefore Christ’s ambassador, representing Him to the people around us who do not yet know Him.

Because we know Christ and He lives in us, we are the link that can cause people to be reconciled to God. They see the love of Jesus in our eyes, and they are drawn to that supernatural love. The more we know who we are, the more we shine Jesus to others, and the more people will be drawn to Christ.


When people ask us for the hope that is within us, we can tell them that it’s Christ! No matter how horrible this life is, we will one day be with Christ forever in heaven, without any tears or sorrow. There will only be joy, and we can have a taste of that joy when we yield to Him here on earth, even in the middle of difficult circumstances.

“But sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” 1 Peter 3:15 NASB


Remember, you are a minister of reconciliation—you have the power within you to win people for Christ! Just ask for opportunities to share your faith. If you are going through sorrow, allow other believers to minister to you so that you can be filled up and strengthened. When you ask Christ what He wants you to do and do it, there is so much joy! It’s energizing!
