2 Corinthians 5:16-21; Galatians 2:20; Ephesians 4:17-24; 6:10-20; Colossians 1:1-23; 3:5-8, 12-17
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us, we implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
Paul and Barnabas fled to Lystra to escape being stoned because they were preaching the gospel. While they were in Lystra, Paul healed a lame man and the people wanted to sacrifice offerings to Paul and Barnabas. Paul didn’t allow them to make offerings to him because he proclaimed the true God. Those who are saved by Jesus are then His ambassadors or messengers.
Part of the beauty of the gospel is that God does not just rescue us from the power of sin, but He is also mak- ing everything new. God offers new creation to those who place their faith in Jesus. This newness comes in two ways. The first is that by breaking the power of sin, Jesus is making men and women into brand new people with new identities. Second, God is not only making people new, but He is also going to make a new heaven and a new earth for us to live on and worship Him in.
