Today’s passage: 2 Corinthians 5:11-21
- Knowing who God is and who we are compels us to share the gospel with others.
- Knowing the love of Christ compels us to share the gospel with others.
- Knowing our commission from the Lord compels us to share the gospel with others.
Questions to consider:
- What is the job of an ambassador? How are we to function if we are ambassadors for Christ? What does that mean about what we consider to be our home land? What does it tell us about the reason(s) we are still here on earth?
- Whose sin was placed on Christ at the cross? Whose righteousness renders you innocent (“not guilty”) before God? How does this reinforce the truth that our salvation is wholly of grace and not of our works?
- How do words like “persuade” (verse 11) and “implore” (verse 20) instruct our thinking about evangelism and our efforts to share Christ with the lost?
