Ambassadors For Christ

Sailors have sometimes to use what they call a "jury-mast." This is a temporary mast which takes the place and does the work of the one which has been carried away with the storm. Christ was carried away with the storm of human indignation and hate. We as Christians are now in "Christ's stead" (2Co_5:20)-doing His work in His place. Our work is also like the "jury-mast"-very temporary, only for a little while.
