Main Text: 1 Peter 2:9 – But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.
2 Corinthians 5:20 – Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God’ (NKJV)
An ambassador is an official messenger and representative. The main text admonishes us to be good representatives of Christ. Therefore, as ambassadors of Christ, we are supposed to display characters of Christ in all our dealing. Christ was meek, gentle, kind and portrayed all the fruit of the Holy Spirit while on earth (Galatians 5:22-23). As good ambassadors of Christ, your behaviour at work place, home and in all daily activities must represent what Christ will do if He was physically present in planet earth.
Live a life worthy of emulation that is, a life that pleases the God. God is calling for a life that shows His nature and attributes. Your life should challenge fellow Christians to thrive to live better for Christ and also draw sinners to the light of God’s love. There should be visible difference between a life that is standing out for Christ and otherwise.
ARE YOU A GOOD AMBASSADOR FOR CHRIST?
