If you are one of the rare, but blessed recipients of God’s “unspeakable gift” of salvation you should “leap for joy!”
If you have been named as an inheritor of eternal life, you indeed should rejoice, “and be exceeding glad; for great is your reward in heaven…” Matthew 5:12
If you are a joint-heir with Christ Jesus, you have been raised to heights unseen by natural man.
Imagine-being named “joint-heirs” with Jesus Christ, the King and creator of the universe!

 

How can we comprehend such glory!

 

Yet, this is the inheritance awaiting all those named in the testament written and secured by Jesus Christ.

 

If God has reconciled us to Himself through the work of Jesus Christ, what could be more glorious?

 

With this gift comes great honor, not only in heaven, but also in this earth, for when we become “born again” we are commissioned to represent the Kingdom of God!

 

Each and every inheritor of salvation becomes an ambassador of God and His Kingdom.

 

Though ambassadors of Christ cannot reconcile others to God, we, however have been given the great honor of being given the ministry of reconciliation.

 

God commissions His people to act in Christ’s stead to beseech others to be reconciled to God.

 

“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.”

 

“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 Corinthians 5: 18&20

 

What higher calling could we be given, than to be called to be “ambassadors for Christ?”

 

If we are an adopted member of Christ’s family, we have been given the blessed “ministry of reconciliation.”

 

This is the essence of the entire mission of Family Radio, “the ministry of reconciliation.”

 

Family Radio is nothing more than a collective partnership to make known God’s means of reconciling Himself to sinful mankind, namely through His Son, Jesus Christ.

 

“To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.”            II Corinthians 5:19

 

May our lives be given wholly to “the ministry of reconciliation” that others, who have yet to hear the blessed name of Jesus Christ, hear the good news of salvation by grace alone.
