It is an astounding thought that we are ambassadors of the Kingdom of Heaven while we still live in the body of sin and death, just like all people are. We have been given this Great Commission, even though according to Apostle Paul its executor is the grace of God and not ourselves. That is why we can trust the power of God while we are weak. He quickens us through His Spirit. The old is gone away and the new has come in its stead!
“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God” (2 Corinthians 5:20). This calling is for all of us wherever we live or work. At the Summer Days conference 2019 we want to learn more about this, to encourage and to comfort one another, and to hear news from around the world from the fields that have turned white for harvest. Welcome to our celebration together!
