TOPIC: THE ELEVEN PASTOR: DON'T BE AN EMBARRASSMENT!

BASIC SCRIPTURES: (2 CORINTHIANS 3:2; 5:17-21)

I attended a gathering recently in which a senior pastor in one of the fastest growing churches in the world today told those of us in that gathering a story he heard from a journey he had just undertaken: A certain church had sent eleven pastors as missionaries there in turns at different times. One of the stories that was in the front burner was that all these eleven pastors had been a disappointment to their home church.

They had one way or the other compromised their callings as ambassadors both for their church, country and the body of Christ. To make matters worse, one lady in that foreign country had accused one of the pastors of getting her pregnant resulting in the birth of a child. In order to confirm the allegation, the home church had to send some representatives to see teh family of the woman to conduct a DNA test to determine the paternity of the born child.

The result was postive! Oh God! The truth of the matter is that you are an ambassador of Christ. An ambassador is one who lives in a foreign country and is accredited to represent his home country in that foreign land. You are accredited by heaven to represent Christ here on earth.

One who takes on an ambassadorial brand is supposed to represent that brand in a positive light and provide consumers with a memorable face-to-face experience of that brand. You are the brad of Christ that men and women, especially those without Christ have a face-to-face experience with. Today's scripture states emphatically in 2 Corinthians 5:20, "Now then we are ambassadors for Christ." 2Corinthians says, "Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men."

As 2020 ends, your conduct must reflect the gospel of Christ by His grace. Philip Yancey wrote: "The proof of spiritual maturity is not how pure you are but awareness of your impurity. That very awareness opens the door to grace." Yes! By His grace alone, but LIVE RIGHT!

You are the "Bible" That some people may ever read till they die! Don't live like those eleven pastors who have brought disappointment both to their families, home church and by extension, the body of Christ. You are called to be an ambassador and not an "embarrassment" of Christ!Join me the PROPHETIC RAIN SERVICE 8PM Nigeria Time Today as we also deal with every marital embarrassment!

Song 1. Blessed Assurance...

1. Blessed assurance; Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
born of his spirit, washed in his blood.

Refrain:

This is my story, this my song,
Praising my savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my savior all the day long.

2. Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

3. Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my savior and happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with his goodness, lost in his love.
