Monday's Message of Hope

Ambassadors for Christ!
Monday, July 19, 2021 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

As I pondered what bit of hope I could share with you today in living and walking in the Spirit, I felt drawn to 2 Corinthians again. And once more Paul’s exhortations to the church of Corinth did not disappoint:

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ . . . (2 Corinthians 5:20, NKJV)

God, through Paul, calls us his ambassadors. While familiar with the term and the position, what does it look like for believers? I thought a little comparison might help us determine our functions as an ambassador:

Ambassador for the United States                                      

  • Represent the President                                                         
  • Promote peace                                                                        
  • Promote trade                                                                        
  • Exchange information

Ambassador for Christ

  • Represent Christ
  • Become a Peacemaker
  • Exhibit the gifts of the Spirit
  • Share the good news of the Gospel

While the role of an ambassador for any nation holds a great deal of responsibility, as ambassadors for Christ, we carry the image of God and the impress of heaven in our very beings. We are marked for heaven and have been given the inexpressible gift of establishing the very covenants of God in the earth. How do we accomplish this? In fear and trembling, with faith and obedience, giving honor, glory, and blessing to the only true God! I hope you join me this week as we step into our role as ambassadors for Christ.

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • What is your view of an ambassador?
  • How well are you representing Christ on the earth?
  • How will this understanding impact your prayer life?

Have a hope-filled week as an ambassador of our great King!

Family is the mission field, but as I asked the Lord, with a pure heart, He did not disappoint me. this week He gave me His anointing to share His word with our son, in the anointing, to repent from divorce so it would not affect his children and he received the word. Praise God!
