Lesson 4

Following the Wonderful Counselor

  • God calls us to be ambassadors, representing his message, methods, and character (2 Corinthians 5:14-21).
  • Ambassadors get from negative fruit to positive fruit not by fixing problems externally but by heart change.
  • The Love-Know-Speak-Do model follows Christ's example of how to do this (John 13:34).
  • In all of my relationships, I must remember that I am Christ's ambassador.
  • I must examine my goals for my relationships. Am I solely motivated by my own personal happiness? Do I respond to others with a desire to encourage God's work of change in their lives?
  • I must examine my commitment to the message, methods, and character of the King.
