Identity: Ambassadors for Christ

Video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsDQEb-qlyM (1:38) – Identity in Christ

WHO AM I?

WHO AM I IN CHRIST?

WE HAVE A ROLE AS AMBASSADORS IN II CORINTHIANS 5.

1-  WE’RE A TEAM! 

THIS CHAPTER USES THE WORD “WE” 25 TIMES!

WE WORK AS A TEAM, ALL DOING THE SAME THING.

WE WORK INDIVIDUALLY, IN OUR OWN PLACES.

2-  WE’RE THE “AWAY TEAM”.  5:1-10

THIS IS HOW WE VIEW OURSELVES.

5:1-5 – THIS IS A TENT, NOT OUR HOME.

5:6-10 – WE’RE HEADED FOR HOME.

3-  WE’RE ADDING TO THE TEAM.  5:11-21

THIS IS HOW WE VIEW OTHERS. 

WE TEACH “THE TERROR OF THE LORD”.  5:11-13

WE LOVE “THE LOVE OF THE CHRIST”.  5:14-21

WE LOOK NOT ONLY AT OTHERS’ APPEARANCES OR ACTIONS, BUT THEIR NEED.
