Day 5: Love as a Mission
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.Mathew 28:19-20 (KJV)
Reflection: We are ambassadors for Christ, and love is our message. We’re not just commissioned to hold this love within our church walls but to go out and spread it. We’re called to baptize, teach, and fulfill Christ’s command, armed with the love he’s instilled in us.
Illustration: Think about someone who has received a large inheritance and then goes out and generously shares it with others. They don’t hoard it; they distribute it because there’s plenty to go around. That’s how we should treat the love God has bestowed upon us.
Prayer: Lord, as I wrap up this week, remind me daily that I’m called to be your ambassador. Let your love be my mission, my message, and my manner. Amen.
