Christ’s Ambassadors

A United States ambassador to a foreign country is the direct representative of the president. Whenever this person interacts with people, his words and actions directly reflect those of the president.

Similarly, the apostle Paul reminds us that we are to be Christ’s ambassadors:

“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. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making His appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, ‘Come back to God!’” (2 Corinthians 5:19-20 NLT).

That’s a pretty big responsibility. Whenever we interact with our unbelieving neighbors, co-workers, family members and even strangers, we need to remember our words and actions represent Jesus Christ.

How do we know what Jesus would say or do? The first place to start is the Bible, especially the Gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). The more time we spend learning about Jesus, the better prepared we’ll be to represent Him.
