Another incredible blessing of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is that we are His ambassadors on this earth.
Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,
2 Corinthians 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
I Peter 2:9-10 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Ambassadors represent their home country on foreign soil. We have been entrusted – in fact, appointed – as representatives of the Kingdom of God here in the kingdom of this world. Our citizenship and loyalty lies with the Kingdom of God. He has chosen and called us into His royal family. Let’s represent our eternal homeland with honor, dignity, and distinction. What a blessing to be ambassadors of the King of Kings!
