Mortals and Immortals

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.

Paul reminds his readers that he and his fellow laborers are representatives of Christ, conveying the Savior’s messages faithfully. In this case, the charge is urgent, as if God Himself were presenting it: Be in accord with God.
