“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”

2 Cor 5:20


One of the most important skills a Christian must have is the ability to make friends. Your purpose in life demands that you don’t live in isolation. Imagine if the early Christians had kept to themselves because they were introverts, it is unlikely that you would have heard the gospel.


2 Cor 5 refers to you as an ambassador, your job is to beseech others in Christ’s stead to be reconciled to God. In other words, you’re a recruiter. In lay man’s terms, recruiters play a lot of different roles in society. Some recruiters go to schools to pick the best graduating students to work for their company. In extreme cases, terrorist organisations have recruiters who intentionally seek out young people to be sympathetic to their cause.


Whichever the case, there are some things that point out recruiters. One of such is intentionality. Recruiters are intentional about converting people to their cause. They study the people they have in mind, their family background, their likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and seek to find the best way to communicate with them. The recruiter doesn’t just go about his activities expecting they would be able to approach him. No, he intentionally does the approaching.


Someone, in a bid to convert his atheist friend, arranged a beautiful craft anticipating the friend’s visit. As soon as the atheist arrived, the work caught his attention and he wanted to know who did it. “No one,” his friend replied. He was trying to make a point as the atheist did not believe that the world was designed by a supreme being! How intentional are you about reaching people for Christ?
