You Are God’s Agent of Peace

“Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

2 Corinthians 5:18-21

Ponder This

As followers of Christ, we are God's agents of peace. You are an ambassador. What is the peace we share? It is reconciliation. That’s our ministry. What is the ministry of reconciliation? It’s simply telling people about Jesus. He has given to us the ministry of reconciliation.

I was invited to Washington for an inauguration. After the inauguration, I went out the door and got in a cab, and the driver thought I was important because of the door I walked out. He said, “What do you do?” I said, “I am an ambassador.” He asked me “Who do you represent?” I said, “A king.” He said, “Well who is He?” I said, “He's the greatest. I’m a son of God, an ambassador of Jesus Christ, and an emissary of peace.” And I preached Christ to that young man. I had rather be an ambassador for Jesus than to be a prince or king here on this Earth.

Christ has committed to us the ministry of reconciliation. The greatest thing you can do is receive the peace Jesus Christ made on the cross. Let the peace of God rule and reign in your heart. Be not just a peace lover but a peacemaker. Don’t be an appeaser, don’t make peace with sin and unrighteousness, but lift up the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • Who in your life lives as an ambassador of Christ and represents Christ in the things they do?
  • Have you ever considered yourself as God’s agent of peace? How will that change the way you live?
