Step Inside My Brain

There’s the alarm   I have to go to the prison today to deal with suicidal guys.   I don’t want to go.   Holy Spirit work in me, that I would have the strength to face my day. They just keep coming. More people hurting themselves. More people wanting to hurt others. More people wanting to die.   I don’t want to go.   God, please help me.   I can be His ambassador. I can represent Christ.   I can share His care for others.   I can share the wisdom He gives me.   I have to represent Him well. I am His ambassador.   Ambassadors don’t wear frowns all the time.   Ambassadors are not negative.   Ambassadors of Christ are peaceful, and helpful, and make people’s days better.   I have to go.   God has called me to go. He needs His followers to work in prisons.   I can bring light into a dark place.   I can show mercy where there may be none.   I can bring justice where it is needed.   My life can draw others to Christ.   I can do His work in that prison.   I can walk in His strength and show others what my heavenly Father is like.   I want to go.   I’m in the car.   My brothers in Christ are building me up through sermons. God’s Word is active in me.   I am ready to serve.   I am here. The doors are slamming. The radio calls are going out. Officers are everywhere. Inmates are on the move.   Let’s do this God. You. Me.   I am your ambassador.     20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” 2 Corinthians 5:20     For Jesus,   Rob
