Heavenly Naturalization

“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” Corinthians 5:20

An ambassador represents his or her homeland, while living in a foreign nation. This diplomatic messenger portrays the laws and ideals of their government and acts as a resident influence in international affairs.

The Bible calls us citizens of heaven (Phil 3:20). As we live for the King, we reflect heaven’s way of life to those around us. We have been made ministers of reconciliation; we are ambassadors for Christ. We have each been anointed to represent Jesus to a dying world. We do this through our godly lifestyle, through prayer, through God’s miracle-working power, and through the proclamation of the Lord’s message.

We have the answer to the cries of hurting humanity – it is Jesus. He is the only cure. We are to introduce those that have not embraced Christianity to the naturalization process of heaven. God wants to welcome them into his family and invites them to become citizens of heaven.

Lord of the Harvest,

Give me a love for the different nationalities and cultures of the world. Give me a burden for humanity. More importantly Lord, give me a desire to introduce them to you. Empower me by your spirit, equip me through your word, and send me out to bring in the harvest. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
