Ambassadors for Jesus Christ

We are commissioned to be “Ambassadors for Jesus Christ” – 2 Corinthians 5:20

To understand this best, what better way is there, than to reflect on what defines an earthly appointed ambassador to a country.

There are 7 traits that define an ambassador

  1. Belongs to the King/Country
  2. Alien in the Country he/she lives
  3. Has a mission to accomplish
  4. Is a Spokesperson
  5. Is Armed and Dangerous
  6. Is willing to die for the King/Country
  7. Returns Home upon completion of the mission

As Ambassadors for Jesus Christ, we

  1. Belong to the King of Kings / the Country of Heaven
  2. Are aliens in this earthly domain
  3. Have a mission to man to God – John 3:16
  4. Are spokesperson for Jesus Christ
  5. Are armed and dangerous – a powerful force to be reckoned with when God is on our side
  6. Are/Should be willing to die for the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords
  7. Will one day return back Home to be with God – and we should live incessantly looking forward to the return of Jesus to take us home.

Point to Ponder:

How are we doing as Ambassador for Jesus Christ?

2 Corinthians 5:20-21 (KJV)
20 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.
21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
