Yesterday was two thirds day for those of us reading through the Bible in a year.

BorrowdaleHaving been in the holiday season it doesn’t seem two minutes since we passed half way, but the end of the year is now in sight and will come all too quickly.

In the reading plan that I am following we are also in the middle of 2 Corinthians at the moment. Today’s reading from 2 Corinthians concludes with a challenging statement:

For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!” For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

2 Corinthians 5:19-21

I pray that in reading the Bible this year we are coming to a bit better the one for whom we are called to be ‘Ambassadors’.
