Of all the things that we are called to do as Sunday School teachers, being an ambassador for Christ is near the top of the list! Recent research reveals that we are not being very good ambassadors however. Barna Research indicates that only 3% of America's churches are growing through true conversion growth of lost people. About 15% of our churches are growing through transfer growth of our church members.
Through all of the debate about the methods or programs a church has at its disposal to evangelize its community, the best way to impact lostness is share the gospel personally! My pastor said it in his sermon Sunday, "Programs don't bring people to Christ, people do!" That is why every person who has committed themselves to being a Christ-follower is also an ambassador of the gospel. Each of us represents Christ to our next door neighbor and our work associates. So if we are ambassadors of Christ, let's be the best ambassadors we can!
So take some time today and find a way to share how Christ has transformed your life with another person.
