Fellowship: His Missionaries
Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.
Exodus 19:5-6 (NKJV)
The lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the Law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the Lord of hosts.
Malachi 2:7 (NKJV)
He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:19-20 (NIV)
You were slain, and have redeemed us to God by Your Blood out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us kings and priests to our God; And we shall reign on the earth.
Revelation 5:9-10 (NKJV)
Actors, models and talent for Christ: understand your roles as God's 21st century communication task force:
As His fishermen, your talent is God's lure in the seas of media.
As His messengers, your voice is clear and true in a world of confusion.
As His saints, your purity and virtue are amazingly transparent.
As His treasure, your value to Him is more than beauty, fame or fortune.
As His priests, your best sermon is a silent film called, How You Live Your Life.
As His ambassadors, you represent Heaven best by how well you love.
As His kings, you rule by this creed: To whom much is given, much is required.*
As His troop, you subdue Satan. To him you are fierce. To men you are kind.
As His disciples, you go unto all nations with a smile and Good News.
As His witnesses, you testify of His wonderful works in your life.
As His performers, you understudy The Rock and give Him all glory.
As His stars, you rise and shine on the darkened stages of entertainment.
As His trailblazers, you clear a new way called the highway of holiness.
As His models, you look fine but not fake, cool but not cheap, bought but not sold.
As His banner, you raise a high standard: a healthier goal for our kids.
As His leaders, you serve. Your highest position is kneeling submission.
As His followers, you carry your cross until the final curtain falls.

NOTE: This series is a republished edit of a 2015 series called, 'Fellowship.' In these devotions, you may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' I have not changed this designation. Because in a greater sense, every disciple of Christ acts for Christ, models Christ and stewards His talents, from which God expects a profit.
P.S. To read the other devotions in this series, please see the Fellowship series.
