Ambassadors of Love

My heart hurts when I think of all the people in the world who do not know of Jesus, who do not know Jesus. My heart hurts when I think of all the people that have the wrong image of who Jesus is. My heart hurts when I realize it’s our fault. Why do we look like ambassadors of the world when we are to be ambassadors of Love? We were made for so much more.

“We are to love as we are loved, by this everyone will know that we are His and that He loves them.” John 13:34-35

This world is full of so much hatred. Hatred for itself. Hatred for each other. Hatred for hatred. There is a reason why the two greatest commandments command us to Love. Love is what defeats hatred. Love is what saved us, love is what will save the world. Hand by hand we can start an epidemic of love. Hand by hand we can continue what Jesus did for us on the cross, Love us. The world has made love seem superficial, but love is the truest and the realest thing that exists.

“Greater love has no man than this: to lay down your life for your friend.” John 15:13

Be quick to forgive and slow to resent
See people for who they are not what they’ve done
We’ve all done wrong and fallen down
Remember David? A man after God’s own heart
An adulterer and a murderer
Yet, God loved him so
God loves us just the same
His love is oh so great
See beyond the deeds and into the soul
Perceive what the Creator sees
People in need of hope and of a second chance
Someone to lift them up and take their hand
Loneliness is a lie that died at the cross
Extend your heart and be a friend
God gave us each other
To lift up one another
Be intentional and connect
Put your heart on your sleeve
Let your story shine through
Some people are to be reached through you
You are his hands and feet
The salt and light of the world
Created to be used by Him
A vessel in His hands
Shaped and formed for so much more
Remember David? Just a Shepard
Slayed goliath with the swing of a rock
Saul, a persecutor of believers
Became Paul an advocator for believers
Humility isn’t thinking less of you
But thinking more often of others
Putting them before yourself
For even Jesus, who is a king, came down as a man
To serve and not to be served
He gave His life for the world
There is no greater love than this
To love when you’re not loved
For by this the world will know the greatness of His love
We are ambassadors of Christ, of Love
Loved to love and to bring heaven down
Hand by hand, heart by heart, person by person
The world is overtaken by His love
Love Boldly, holding nothing back
This is the greatest commandment of all

“Love the Lord your God with all tour heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37-39
