“we strive to be Christ’s ambassadors in all areas of life, working to reconcile all peoples back to God.” (2 Corinthians 5:20)
We continue on our journey of living out our identity as Christ ambassadors. At the heart and head level of being an ambassador is the route of being a disciple of Christ – following Jesus and his teachings. At the hands and feet level of being an ambassador is the prospect of doing good deeds and bringing good news. All together this is a tumultuous task, and we could become easily overwhelmed! But our love for God and our love for others keeps us motivated, and God’s Spirit within us (Immanuel) keeps us encouraged.
We came up with an acronym to help us remember to be a blessing; B.L.E.S.S.
- Be in Conversation with God, daily.
- Learn to follow Jesus and obey his teachings.
- Eat with friends and strangers alike.
- Share the resources God has given you with those in need.
- Speak encouragement into the lives of others.
We seek to remember BLESS in our everyday lives while we live out the original vision statement and pursue the goal that lies within – that of being Active Ambassadors. We want to live out of our identity as Christ ambassadors and discover anew that we are blessed to be a blessing; that we are loved by God (blessed) to love our neighbours (blessing). Join us as we continue to walk in the footsteps of our Saviour; learning to be the full stature of Christ.
Come for the messages, stay for the community!
