“I have some people that I need you to invest in. Some of them do not like either Me or you. Some you know already; some others I will bring to you. You will recognize them if you open your eyes and listen with your heart. They look very much like you did a while ago. Don’t let them pass you by without allowing them to know a little more about Jesus, OK? I’m counting on you. If you need any help, I’m here for you.”
2 Cor. 5:20a NIV
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us.
Isn’t it amazing that those who come our way and are turned away for one reason or another are, more than likely, the ones sent to us by God? I wonder if any of us would keep an employee for any length of time if he had the pitiful track record at his task that we have when it comes to showing Jesus to the ones sent to us. Still, our Lord puts up with our selfishness and waits patiently for us to grow up.
Grow me up, Lord,
