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. This is an awesome privilege and a big responsibility. Whenever we interact with our 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? Start with reading 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. Then spend time in prayer getting to know Him personally by recognizing His still small voice speaking to us through His Holy Spirit. There is NOTHING more important you can do with your life than to recognize and live out your responsibility as Christ’s Ambassador. Your pastor and partner in ministry, Kyle
