“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 Corinthians 5:20
One of the most important skills a Believer must have is the ability to make friends. Your purpose in life demands that you don’t live in isolation.
There is a reason why we didn’t go to be with the Father immediately we were saved. It’s because He wants us to reach out to the dying and unsaved with the message we received.
“And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.”
2 Corinthians 5:15
Imagine if the early Christians had kept to themselves because they were introverts, it is very unlikely that you would have heard the gospel.
2 Corinthians 5 refers to you as an ambassador. Our job is to beseech others in Christ’s stead to be reconciled to God.
This means we are in the business of recruiting men. In other words, you’re a recruiter.
There are few things to note as a recruiter.
First, the recruiter is not in it for himself. He is representing the interest of another. We are in it as committed ambassadors doing the will of God.
Recruiters go to places to pick people to work and support their cause.
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 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?
