I started to write a post over a year ago when i first saw this picture floating around on Facebook. For some reason though, I didn’t. However, tonight as I deciding what to write about, I was drawn back to this draft. One of the writing prompts for this week’s blog hop are the two word’s Kingdom Ambassador. As I was “marinating” on what it means to be a Kingdom Ambassador this picture came to mind.
So what does being a Kingdom Ambassador mean to me?
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12, NLT).
- Reflect: Anyone who accepts the free gift that Jesus offers, lets Him into his/her heart, has the light of life inside, and can reflect His light. How do you and I do that? It doesn’t have to be anything complicated. We can reflect the light in the way we treat another person. If you don’t think that’s important enough, let a child who knows what you believe catch you saying a “bad word” like shut up, and you will find out just how important it is. Children watch us ya’ll, whether we always want them to or not, what we are modeling for them matters.
- Shine: When I think of the word shine, I almost instantly think of a song I learned as a little girl. “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.” “Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. You may be thinking Sarah, I don’t have the time or money to go shine my light in another country. Friend, you don’t have to, there are plenty of people in need right here. It may be something as simple as calling someone to brighten up his/her day. You never know when one simple act may have a positive impact.
So my question is what is one way you and I can be a Kingdom Ambassador today?
