be an ambassador

Regardless of what is going on in your life, be my ambassador. Act in love no matter what is happening around you. Be a beacon of hope in pain, suffering, hardship, affliction, and unrest. Let people see your pure heart, knowledge, patience, kindness, and genuine love, which come only by my Spirit. Speak truthfully and without qualification. Guard yourself with holiness and wholeness on every side. Seek to live an integrated life whether you are honored or dishonored, slandered or praised, rejected as a liar or accepted as a truth-bringer, living or dying, in punishment, sorrow, or loss. Keep hoping even when everything seems bleak.

Letters to the Beloved
