The Doorpost: Our privileged ambassadorships

Ray King  ·  Sep 28, 2017

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God
2 Corinthians 5:20

An ambassador is one who has agreed to dedicate himself to representing someone else. Everything he says and everything he does must be consistent with the interests of the one he is representing—every day, any time of day, everywhere he goes. He must subordinate his own interests. 

We are ambassadors for Christ. Our lives should be lived for Him, not for ourselves. Romans 12:2 says that we should present our bodies as living sacrifices. Everything we think, say, and do should be an offering to Him.       

Jesus has a unique ambassadorship in His Kingdom for each of us that is individually designed for us to fill. No matter how difficult, no matter who may be against us, whether by life or by death, He causes all things to work together for the good of those who love Him, as we fulfill His purpose (Romans 8:28).   

What privileged ambassadorships!
