Sitting at the embassy gates
“So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 20 NLT
Does my daily life truly mirror being an ambassador for Christ?
I fear my diplomatic status being revoked. Perhaps even find myself sitting at the gates of the embassy, unable to provide myself worthy of the very immunity I’m supposed to grant others.
A small voice inside says, “Gee, Christa, you’re not an awful person.”
But a bigger voice shouts, “Well, now, that’s not exactly the life Christ called you to. I don’t remember any Scripture about blessed are those who are not awful. “
I want others to recognize that Christ lives in me, even if the moving van is still unloading the furniture.
