Answer of Ambassadors

"Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?... The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things" (Proverbs 15:11,28).  "Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men... Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God" (2 Corinthians 5:11,20). 

The answer of ambassadors
Who speak for Christ must never waver,
Though every mocker still ignores
Their urgent need of heaven's favor.

There is a heaven and a hell,
No matter what the fool may say. 
Ambassadors must study well
And speak persuasively today. 

We know the terror of the Lord
That calls us to persuade the lost
To take the grace they can't afford
By trusting Christ who paid the cost. 

Lord, grant us boldness in our speech
To offer reconciliation
As Your ambassadors who preach
The answer of Your great salvation.
