Did you know you are an ambassador? An ambassador is someone appointed to a special position of representing our country to a foreign land. In reality, the truth is that all Christians are ambassadors. Read these words from 2 Corinthians 5:20, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us…” So there you have it; every Christian is an ambassador. As I thought about this, I was reminded that every ambassador is both a messenger for someone else, as well as, a representative of the one who sent him or her. That is what it means to be an ambassador for Christ. Every Christian has a message to tell as we represent Christ to everyone with whom we come into contact. Our message is told with our words and with how we live. Therefore today, make sure your words and actions are appropriate for representing Christ in this world.
Think about it…and have a blessed day!
