Note: “Ungodly” simply means someone without God in their lives, a person that has not been transformed by the power of the gospel. It doesn’t necessarily mean someone is living on skid row, ungodly doesn’t mean that the person is hooked on drugs and has been arrested dozens of times. Ungodly simply means someone that hasn’t been transformed into a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17) by way of faith in the finished work of the cross. Even good people, moral people are without God in their lives and that would make them ungodly. On the other hand, a godly person isn’t someone that has a halo around their head. A godly person isn’t someone that never sins and is now perfect. NO WAY! A godly person is someone that believed the gospel by faith alone and is now “Justified” by God, a new creation indwelled with the Holy Spirit and sealed, moved out of Satan’s domain, and into the kingdom of His Son, Jesus Christ.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
First, the lost world will never know how much God loves them unless we (believers) share the gospel with them. Second, all believers MUST be capable of demonstrating to the lost world how much God loves them.
Every believer must be ready to share the gospel without hesitation. The lost person will want to know why you believe what you believe. And we MUST be capable of articulating our faith using Scripture with no hesitation with humility, compassion, and love.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
I Peter 3:15
We are ambassadors for Christ! God leaves us here to share the good news.
‘Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation. Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.’
II Corinthians 5:18-21
