You Have a Commitment

You know that when you were born again, you were made brand new right?  It’s one of the first things we learn as born again believers.  2 Cor 5:17 tells us that.  But did you know that you have been given an assignment?  Better yet, you have been committed to something by God Himself?

Let’s take a look:

…who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.    2 Cor 5:18-19.

When we are born again, not only are we recreated and made new, but also God Himself commits us to give this message to everyone:  That He is NOT taking into account their sins!!!  That God Himself, through Jesus Christ, made it so that fellowship and friendship between God and man could be reinstated!  This is GREAT NEWS!!!

And it is our job to tell everyone that God is their Friend and that He is NOT angry with them!  Therefore, if we have been committed to such a task and have been entrusted with such a message, let’s not keep it to ourselves.  Let’s give the message of reconciliation out freely to everyone.  Let’s commit today:

“Lord, I realize that I am a minister of the message of reconciliation.  From today on, I will give out that message to all men, so that they may know that it is your desire to be their Friend.  Thank you Jesus!!!”
