Go Serve Your King

Being an ex-radio-host, I'm intrigued with sign-offs. Todd Friel, Way of the Master Radio, signs off every day with the line, "Go serve your King!"

These words remind me that I have a new job and a new employer... God Himself!

I have a new "job"... a new "calling"... since I have been made into a new "creation". 2 Corinthians 5:20a gives me my job description: "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were entreating through us."

Ladies, God is entreating people through US! The King has sent us, as ambassadors into this land of temporary residence. Oh yes, we used to call this land, home. But now we are aliens. We have received a new citizenship. And when that citizenship became "official" with the Holy Spirit's seal on our heart, we were employed in the King's work.

We are now ambassadors, cleverly disguised as university students, mothers, nurses, teachers, etc. We have a job to do and are even "thoroughly equipped" to do our work.

So today, with all our strength, let us go and serve our King!!

I just came across your post. I, too, listen to Todd and do appreciate his sign-off. As a former talker myself (and dj before that) my sign off was simply, "Peace." I got a note from a former listener (hadn't heard me in over 10 years) to let me know they remembered that single word. It's great how God can work in us if we get out of the way!
