Authentic reconciliation is all about speaking the truth - as we know it - without watering down for political purposes, listening to the other speak truth as he knows it - with all the respect we would want for ourselves - and letting the Lord Jesus reframe the conversation into truth as He knows it. This is the heart of any Gospel in which the Lord tells us to postpone giving gifts to Him until we have reconciled with one another. It is the core of any revelation that, "in Christ God was reconciling the world to Himself...So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making His appeal through us."
This book addresses every kind of human division from tribes and nations to genders and generations and - surely - the many factions within the Body of Christ. It is stories the author has lived and scriptures that are their foundation. It offers pragmatic strategies for groups and pairings of individuals who would walk as ambassadors of reconciliation. It is about becoming people of repentance and its fruits. The author believes a lifestyle of repentance is a privilege rather than a punishment, the very stuff of the Kingdom.
James A. Wilson is a personal witness to what he teaches in Living as Ambassadors. He has traveled some two hundred thousand miles in pursuit of reconciliation between tribes and nations; he has led repentance activities and events in multiple nations and his vision for a California Day of Repentance spread to include the whole west coast of the United States and Canada in 2015.
Attempts to solve relationship problems through means other than God's mercy and grace are vain and fruitless. Reconciled relationships are all about gaining full freedom in Christ. Book jacket.
James Wilson has served the Kingdom of God over four decades as educator, pastor, and founder/president of international parachurch ministry PrayNorthState. He envisioned and helped organize Bible Breakthroughs in multiple American states and nations - including Australia - and God gave him vision to organize and lead the first retreat for California legislators. His vision for a California Day of Repentance spanned four states and Canada's British Columbia. It resulted - by God's grace - in cultural shifts with pragmatic impact. He has a special heart for ethnic reconciliation and has delivered plenary addresses to multiple World Christian Gatherings on Indigenous Peoples, but his heart is to engage encouraging relationships with indigenous and immigrant leaders. His blog reaches some four hundred thousand readers. He believes the last Great Awakening is just beginning alongside the End Times Tribulation. He is married to Jillian and is the father of three children.
