You are an ambassador!

Do you know what an ambassador is? I didn’t fully get it until someone told me.

What is an ambassador?

According to Merriam-Webster’s dictionary, an ambassador is, “a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his or her own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment ”

To paraphrase, an an ambassador is the highest ranking official of a particular “kingdom”, representing that kingdom, in a foreign land.

Did you know that if you are in Christ, you are an ambassador?

1 Corinthians 5:19-20 tells us plainly,
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. 20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

Does your workplace or school feel like a foreign land?

God understands. He has sent you to that very place to represent Him. And not just represent Him, but to be the highest ranking official for the Kingdom of Heaven in that place! What an honor!

When something goes wrong, don’t see it as a setback. Let’s start to view those things as push back from the enemy, because if we are walking in God’s light, we are right where He wants us to be; in a foreign land with the good news of Jesus to share!
