Ambassador of Christ Part-4. imaolanews

Ambassador of Christ Part – 4 Isaiah 12:4-6 – “Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing tothe Lord, For He has done excellent things;
This is knownin all the earth. Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great isthe Holy One of Israel in your midst!” In Part-3, weread about the man who had demons and how he was set free by Jesus (Mark 5: 1-13).  When he attained his proper frame of mindthrough Jesus, he did not rest.  He didnot go to a seminary, but the Bible says that “he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done forhim” (Mark 5:20). The Decapolis(“Ten Cities”) was a group of ten cities on the eastern frontier of theRoman Empire in Judea and Syria. Imagine his joy, his ecstasy to go into tencities and proclaim the Glory of God. What was this man talking about?…. He was talking about the mercy ofGod, the love of God, and that God loves us no matter what has happened in ourpast lives; he wants to cancel all our past and give us a future.  Amen. 
2 Timothy 3:16-17 – All Scriptureis given by inspiration of God,and is profitable for doctrine,for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man ofGod may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
 That’sexactly what Peter and Paul were doing after the death and resurrection ofJesus.   They preached the word of God tochange people’s hardened hearts and make them to reconcile with God.  The Bible is a sure guide to eternal life. The prophets and apostles did not speak theirown thoughts, but delivered what they received from God. There is something in the Scriptures suitablefor every case.  This ministry ofReconciliation is given to each one of us. Just as Jesus and the apostles spoke, when we speak the Word of God, ourhardened hearts are broken and we receive the love of Christ. Praise God!1 Corinthians 1:27-29 – But God chose what is foolish in the world toshame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; Godchose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bringto nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presenceof God.
