2 Corinthians 5: Represent!

No matter where I go, whether I am teaching or taking classes at San Diego State, worshiping at the Santee Campus, or ordering coffee at Starbucks, I represent Jesus.

My prayer is that people will see him in me.
His light.
His love.
His gentleness.

Like Paul, we are Christ's ambassadors, given the ministry of reconciliation.

We were once enemies of God, alienated from him by our sin.
And now we are new creations.
We are his children.

And our mission is reconcile others to God, just as we have been reconciled to him.

We don't do that through persuasive speech, although we should always be prepared to give a reason for the hope we have.

We do that by serving, by loving, by living so that people see Jesus in our lives.
