What does it mean to be an ambassador of Christ? An ambassador is one who represents one country while living in another; they are authorized to speak on their king’s behalf to others far from home. In Christ, believers are called to be ambassadors. In that role we are: entrusted with the message of the gospel; sent with God’s authority and empowered to represent Him; representing another kingdom; and proclaiming our King’s message of reconciliation. As ambassadors representing Jesus to the world, we should remember that people are watching how we use the authority and the message we’ve been given.
