You've got the ball ...

Have you ever seen a picture that immediately had a message for you?

I have, on several occasions, including this morning when I saw the image above. It was a humorous item posted on Facebook, but I found the message to be more profoundly applicable than for just a morning laugh.

It reminded me that God has handed ALL TRUE BELIEVERS the ball, and in this case, the ball being the Gospel message ...

"And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ's ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, 'Come back to God!'" 2 Corinthians 5:18-20.

Did you catch those amazing points that directly pertain to OUR responsibility?

... that God has given US the task of reconciling people to Him ...

... that God has given US a wonderful message of reconciliation to share with the unbelieving world, the message of the Gospel ...

... and that WE (yes, that does include YOU if you are a Christian) are the ambassadors of Christ through whom God is making His appeal to a lost world.

You've got the ball.

It won't throw itself.

What are you doing with it?
