“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 5:20 NLThttp://bible.com/116/2co.5.20.nlt
Here are the duties of an ambassador of the United States:
Anis the President’s highest-ranking representative to a specific nation or international organization abroad. An effective ambassadorhas to be a strong leader—a good manager, a resilient negotiator, and a respected representative of the United States.
And Benjamin Franklin wrote: "The qualities of aare sleepless tact, unmovable calmness, and a patience that no folly, no provocation, no blunders may shake."
So if we are Christs ambassadors we need to represent Christ just like our country's ambassadors represent the President. We need to do so with tact, calmness, and patience. We are pleading for the lost to come back to God. We are ambassadors in a foreign land and our mission is of eternal importance. We have to have credibility and we need to be pure in heart. We can't be hypocritical and we need to live like Christ. It takes time and patience!
Dear a Lord, Speak through me. May I be a good ambassador for you. May I work tirelessly in your service to share the message of salvation. May I bring peace and joy to a world filled with chaos. Amen!
