Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV

As I read this verse, I’m both comforted and challenged knowing that I am an ambassador for Christ. The verse doesn’t say that one day I might gain “ambassador” status if I do enough for God. On the flip side, the verse doesn’t say it’s a role I could lose one day. No, as a believer and follower of Christ, God’s truth says I am His ambassador whether I choose to take it seriously or not. It was only a few years ago that this verse resonated in my heart enough to prompt change in the way I acted and carried myself around others. Would I feel comfortable acting this way around others if I’m the only Jesus follower they know? Lord, may I continually seek to represent Your will and ways to those around me.
