Being an Ambassador for the Greatest King and His Kingdom
LISTEN NOW! Greg and Pat discuss being an ambassador for the greatest King and his kingdom, Jesus Christ. They continue to discuss what an actual ambassador does. It is especially important and beneficial for us to get this understanding as God’s word instructs us to be Ambassadors for Jesus. Just recently Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late President John F. Kennedy, was just appointed as United States Ambassador in Japan. In her role as a United States Ambassador she moved to Japan and does her best in sharing American culture and building relationships so the President’s plans and agenda are communicated and given the best possible opportunity to succeed in the land. The ideal behind being an ambassador is to always be the highest and most direct representation of your country in a foreign land. For instance when anyone in Japan would see Ambassador Caroline Kennedy it is appropriate to understand that she represents America. Ambassadors don’t just show up on their own but rather are sent. They continue to discuss the duties and functions of an ambassador as the ambassador helps the people in the land they are in to visit the country they represent. How one secures passports and all the proper documentation and most of that information is provided in a building called the embassy. God himself has given us a ministry of reconciliation and has called us as Christians to be his representatives and to help the people we come in contact with the opportunity to enter His Kingdom. It’s not about getting them to visit the embassy “the building” but rather it’s about helping people enter the Lord’s Kingdom. God wants us to tell them how awesome He is and that he loves them and has a plan for their life. It’s not strange for you to walk into a place and everyone to know that you are a Christian. If you are ashamed of Jesus you can’t be his ambassador. We are citizens of the Lord’s Kingdom and people should be able to look to us not just to know what a citizen of heaven looks like but to find assistance and how they can become a citizen of heaven too. God loves you so much he paid the price for your citizenship.
We Live by The Breath of God; It’s Our Fuel
In this abiding moment Pat and Greg discuss how we live by the breath of God and how his breath, his voice is our fuel. Pat shares how he has been reading the book The Torch and the Sword written by Rick Joyner. In this prophetic book in which Rick shares truth he received through dreams and visions. “The Lord makes His messengers flames of fire. You cannot walk with God, or fulfill His purpose for you on this earth, unless you keep this fire burning in your heart. Lukewarmness is your deadly enemy. You must not let the fire wane by drifting from His presence. This fire which now burns in your heart must be given fuel each day. Its fuel is the atmosphere of heaven, which is the breath of God. What He breathes upon lives, and what He does not breathe upon dies. Seek this life and pursue it. If you do, you will leave a trail of life where the River of Life will break out and flow. If you walk as you are called, you will help restore true life to the earth.” They continue to discuss how Jesus alone is their source. Abiding and spending time with the Lord is not something we check off but rather what we desire and willingly choose to do. It’s all about God breathing upon your life. You can’t confuse working for God and spending time with God. The way you spell love is T-I-M-E. If we truly love God we will not only spend time with him but we will surrender and give our lives to him.
