“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” II Cor. 5:20
We are ambassadors for God’s kingdom. That means that we have to judge. How do we do rightly judge? By God’s word. That means we are given authority. How do we use that authority? Through the Holy Spirit. That means that we are to serve. How do we serve? By the love of God.
