Share What You Love
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us... 2 Corinthians 5:20
We are to be ambassadors of Christ. When I think of the word "ambassadors", my mind immediately goes to all the social media influencers that post on the daily about the brands and products they love. They share what they love! It is part of their job description. It is the same for us. It is our purpose as followers of Christ to be a Jesus-sharing people.
Acts 9:28 explains that Paul went out “..to speak boldly in the name of the Lord.” That's it! That's what we are called to do. To be bold, to take initiative, to reach out and make disciples in the name of Jesus our Lord and Savior. This call for us makes my heart so excited and filled with a sense of urgency.
Be filled with a sense of urgency.
It truly makes my day when I am able to meet with my girls over Zoom calls and talk about Jesus and what He is doing in our lives!
This is what we are meant to do!
We are meant to be the body of Christ, to uplift our brothers and sisters in Christ, to make disciples, and lead them back to the One who rose from the DEAD. The One we just celebrated this past weekend! This is what it is all about. Let’s stop hiding behind fear. Remember to share what you love.
There is a quote that has been replaying in my head recently:
“Live less out of habit and more out of intent.”
I’m not sure who said it first but it is so true! How are we going to do this? How are we going to apply this to our lives? How are we going to be intentional, be filled with urgency, and be bold to reach out in this crazy time of social distancing?
I have been reminded through this season that technology really can be a blessing at times, and we can use it to our advantage! We can check in with that friend that we only used to see in class or at work, or check in with that acquaintance that you always say hi to in that coffee shop! Most likely you already follow several people on social media, so use this time to be bold! Reach out and ask them how they’ve been doing, what their life looks like in quarantine, and if there is anything you can be praying about for them. It’s as simple as that. An act of kindness, a step out of your comfort zone, may just start a conversation that will allow you to share about the Savior that died for you and them on that cross years ago. We are to be ambassadors.

In other words, share what you love.
