Week 19 – Ambassadors Seeing
We had a great Ambassador Meeting this past weekend. I love reconnecting with all our friends and extended family of ambassadors. If you ever wonder what does an ambassador supposed to do, then here it is –
- Be a spokesperson – Ambassadors can answer questions first hand
- Share updates with people in their churches and circles of influence
- Volunteer recruitment – Many Ambassadors are the first to volunteer
- Adopt-a-Building/Facility for upkeep and maintenance – Many Ambassadors have led their churches to adopt various places and buildings on our campus
- Attracting groups to Windermere – all groups of any size can utilize Windermere. Ambassadors encourage Sunday school classes, deacons, youth, families, and so on to come to Windermere.
- Approaching churches about donations to Windermere
- Create a sense of ownership – Ambassadors talk about “us” and “we”
During our meeting I shared from one of Jesus’ most famous parables – The Good Samaritan. Look at Luke 10:31-35
31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[e] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
I challenged our Ambassadors and friends to take note of the Good Samaritan because he was a good ambassador. How? Look at the verses –
- He saw – He saw with fresh eyes v. 33a
- He had compassion – Not only did he see but he felt v.33b
- He took action – He went to the wounded man. v. 34a
- He got good results – He bandaged the wounds and took care of him v. 34b
- He paid a price – He took out two silver coins to cover expenses. v. 35
Maybe that is the greatest challenge for all of us Christ followers. We need to really see things and we need to feel something when we see it.
