“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” – 2 Corinthians 5:20 (NASB)
As a little girl, my mother, sister and I lived with my grandmother. Without understanding my emotions at the time, I was feeling lonely and discarded. My grandfather died and my father was absent from our lives. I vividly recall staring out my bedroom window looking up toward the sky knowing something out there was greater than me. I wanted to be rescued. I believe that yearning was the beginning of His introduction, as the Spirit of God was welcoming me to Himself.
He brought a faithful woman into my life who identified the voice my heart heard calling from my window. It was then I understood who desired to meet me. With the faith of a child, I accepted my savior Jesus, my first love, with whom I had just met. I learned that He knew me before I entered my mother’s womb, He said I was fearfully and wonderfully made in His image, and that His thoughts of me out number the grains of sand. My loneliness and unsettled heart lifted as He introduced Himself and I greeted the One who first loved me.
I am thankful for the “ambassador” who made an appeal to my young heart and formally introduced me to the rescuer of my soul.
(Relevant Reading: Psalm 139: 13-18, Genesis 1:27; 2:7, Titus 2:4, John 14:6)
Is there a yearning in your heart to meet the redeemer of your soul or is there someone you know that may need a formal introduction?
