Now then 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.2 Corinthians 5:20
Here’s a reminder of who you are and what you are about, we believe you are actively engaging all resources at your disposal to ensure that your purpose of being sent is achieved. It’s understandable that the trials and tribulations come, the master told us about them, but remember he also said we should rejoice for he has overcome. You are doing great and there’s more we want to share with you to help you be better ambassadors in your various places of assignments.
You have been given the role of being ambassadors of Christ. Though you reside on earth, you are representatives of Jesus Himself. This is both an honourable call and responsibility. This means that your actions, speech, and life are supposed to mirror the desires and person of Christ, you can be confident in this Phil.2.13 – for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. He’s working in and through you.
You must know that like Jesus we represent the one who has sent us. So everything we do must be in his best interest. You are doing right representing Christ if you are often speaking of Him to others, now than speaking about him, allow him to lead your life (your decisions, what we do, and what we don’t do in daily situations).
In 1 Corinthians 11:1, Paul writes “Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ.” And again in Ephesians 5:1, he writes: “Therefore be imitators of God, as dear children.” It must therefore be possible for us to imitate Christ, that is to say, to represent and communicate His desires and will while we are here on earth. As ambassadors of Christ, When we speak, we speak on behalf of our King. We step into every situation with the full authority to represent the heart of Jesus, and we’ve been commissioned to share the message of the gospel. That is the role that we fill every day of our lives.
Begin to think about yourself today, not as just another ordinary man or woman but as an ambassador of Almighty God. Let the interests of His kingdom be foremost in your mind and heart. Submit yourself to Him and say, “Lord, show me how to be Your representative in everything I do.”
You are an ambassador for Christ. Begin to live like it today. You are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses cheering you to victory.
