The Olympic games wrapped up over the weekend and wow what an exciting time that was for everyone to see the greatest athletes in the world compete at the top of their abilities. It was a truly an amazing sight to see and one I will remember for years to come. One of the most wonderful part of these games was watching the great pride with which these men and woman proudly put their countries emblem on their chest or back and gave everything they had in the name of their country. Whether a large country every knows like China or one that perhaps you had never heard of before such as Montenegro. These athletes were true ambassadors, the face of their countries they represent, which was evident as they would proudly wave their flag.
All of this got me thinking though, do we as Christian wave our flags proudly everyday? In the say way that a French man or woman was a representative for the country of France, as Christians we are representatives of Jesus Christ. I pray that each and everyone of us that calls God our savior would proudly wear our flag and openly live as ambassadors of Christ. Let us remember that Paul wrote, As we strive to run the race set before us, let us do as representatives of our God who sent his only son as payment for the sins of all the word.
2nd Corinthians 5:20,
"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.”
As we strive to run the race set before us, let us do so as representatives of our God who sent his only son as payment for the sins of all the word.
