"Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us."
2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV
Reader, if you are a born-again Christian, you are an ambassador for Christ.
Let us take a moment to let the weight of that statement sink in.
Christ has not only saved us out of His pure grace with his own life, however has labelled us mere wretches as His ambassadors. As a result, we are to reflect that we belong to and represent Christ and a heavenly kingdom to those around us. Although we are in this world, we are not of it.
Being ambassadors of Christ can become a further motivation to think about how we act. Let us ask ourselves:
"would Christ be doing this right now?"
"would Christ be saying this right now?"
"would Christ be thinking this right now?"
As His ambassadors let us ensure that we are not bringing shame to our Lord's name in how we conduct ourselves.
Today, let us ask for the Holy Spirit to provide us strength for today to represent Christ in a way that glorifies Him in accordance to His Word.
