“We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:20
We are viceroys and ambassadors. We exercise His authority, not our own. We reflect and live out our King's values here in this country.
This is our calling, TJC brothers! We have been appointed to the highest, most important, and most prestigious role there could be in this flash of time, called life! We have been appointed by Jesus (Read Matthew 9:35-10:42) to be His representatives, His voice, His ambassadors.
Being an ambassador for Christ is not about earning “points” for heaven. Our approval, our heavenly points, our access to our Father in Heaven, are not about us, or anything we have done or will do. There is nothing we could do that is so good that would give us any of these rewards. All of this was accomplished on an old rugged cross by Jesus, who gave His life there so we would not suffer the wrath we actually deserve for our sinful acts of rebellion. “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness (and ambassadors) of God.” ~ 2 Corinthians 5:21
Daily Battle Order:
The power, authority, and impact as God’s ambassadors are ours only when we align ourselves under Him as His fully sold-out followers.
Jesus offers us complete authority in Him when we live as His disciples, trusting and obeying. Consider the comfort and peace that will come from knowing you have access to the authority of the One who spoke the universe into existence. Let that reality motivate you to grow as a representative and ambassador of the King.
