“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us”
(2 Corinthians 5:20, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
It’s interesting that many of the miracles Jesus performed weren’t planned or scheduled. Oftentimes, they happened when He was interrupted.
Walking down the street, a blind man hollered out, “Jesus! Have mercy! Come over and heal me!” Jesus didn’t say, “Don’t you know I’m the Son of God? I’m important. I’ve got a lot to do.” No, Jesus stopped what He was doing, went out of His way, and healed the man. Jesus was willing to be inconvenienced to help other people in need.
We have to remember that as believers, we are the hands and feet of Jesus in the earth. We are His ambassadors. We may have a lot on our “to do” lists, but we have to be willing to make time for the people God has placed in our lives. That means not only your friends and family, but people you encounter on a daily basis. Today, keep your heart and mind open because God wants to do something in and through you when you choose to make time for Him.
