It's another midweek, I pray God will bless this in Jesus name. Amen.
Fighting the good fight of faith entails us upholding the standard of God through Jesus Christ. Amen. The church in Corinth then when addressed by Paul to them about being a new creature, refined from the old being to speak about the good God has done through Christ to reconcile the world to Himself. Amen.
"16:Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]. [No] even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now [we have such knowledge of Him that] we know Him no longer [in terms of the flesh].
17:Therefore if any person is [ingrafted] in Christ (the Messiah) he is a new creation (a new creature altogether); the old [previous moral and spiritual condition] has passed away. Behold, the fresh and new has come!
18:But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself [received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself] and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation [that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him].
19:It was God [personally present] in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against [men] their trespasses [but cancelling them], and committing to us the message of reconciliation (of the restoration to favor).
20:So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ’s personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.
21:For our sake He made Christ [virtually] to be sin Who knew no sin, so that in and through Him we might become [endued with, viewed as being in, and examples of] the righteousness of God [what we ought to be, approved and acceptable and in right relationship with Him, by His goodness]." 2 Corinthians 5:16-21 (AMP)
As we have enjoy the favour of God through the Lord Jesus Christ, we are just expected to share the message to all others. Christ Jesus who never knew sin became our sins and was crucified that we might be free from all guilt and condemnation. Amen.
Therefore brethren, we are the AMBASSADORS representing Jesus in our spheres of influences. We are to make everyother understand the favour we have received and that which they will enjoy in making it up to God through Jesus Christ. Amen.
Jesus Christ as the favour we are enjoying in the reconciliation process God made over 2016 years ago to ensure man are restored to their primary state in Eden. However we are to be unmovably and unstoppable in fighting the good fight of faith in Jesus. I mean as AMBASSADORS of Christ we don't have to compromise our faith for another rather standing firm to ensure we represent our God to the extreme.
Friend I pray for you this morning that God will make you succeed in you endeavors in Jesus name. Amen. The rift you have experienced that has distracted you from your favour shall be settled today in Jesus name. Amen. You will enjoy favour like never before in the rest of this week in Jesus name. Amen.
Good morning and remain lifted in Jesus Christ name. Amen.
