Christ’s Ambassadors

Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 5:11-21 (day two)

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. vs. 20

When I was a college student one of the ways I earned a scholarship was as a student ambassador. My job was to give campus tours to prospective students and their families. It was my job to learn a lot of information about my school so that I could answer questions should they come up. Part of what I did was to put the university in the best light and to share my love and personal experience with the school. We were never allowed to disparage another institution, but only speak well of ours.

We are Christ’ Ambassadors, and our role although similar, has much more at stake than a potential alma mater. Learn all you can. Spend time in prayer and the Word so that you are ready in season and out to give an account for your faith and the testimony of Christ’s work in your life. Draw people to you by your love for Jesus and for them, not your disdain for the world and its emptiness. Our hope has ever been for the world to be reconciled to God.

  1. Thanks for sharing your personal story as a student ambassador! Great student embassador role model! Ambassador is a position of dignity. It is a position of importance and of dignity!

    There are many embassadors from foreign governments in the United States. They are servants of the foreign government that sent them. As Embassadors, they are the voices of their government policies and messages, not their own.

    I could not agree more, “In the same way, we are called to live under the authority of Jesus Christ and the authority of the Scriptures. We are servants. We must live under the authority of the Word of God. We are called not to do our will, but Christ’s.”

    Christ’s Ambassadors are servants of Jesus Christ! Christ’s Embassadors are the voices of Jesus Christ! It is a position of dignity, accountability, and of responsibility in carrying out the mission of the Lord! Good reminder!
