The Message

2CORINTHIANS 5:16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

"Somehow we all must be made to understand that through the miracle of spiritual transformation in Christ, we, too, become the message. No matter what words we say or how we act, it is our deeds and our being that people will remember. Too many of us are trying to be like, look like, or sound like someone else. Yet God is calling each of us to find, and live, his or her authentic voice. You and I are the message. We are God's thoughts, God's hopes, God's dreams, God's passions, with skin on." Jesus, Life Coach

What a be the message of God. So...what does my life say? What do my actions say? Help me to be Jesus with skin.
