We Are Ambassadors

On Sunday we will continue our series called… “What Following Jesus Means,” in a message entitled, “We Are Ambassadors.” The Apostle Paul gave this name to all Christ followers in 2 Corinthians 5:20a when he said,
“We are Christ’s ambassadors.”
An ambassador is defined as a representative sent out on a mission to build relationships. If you’re going to follow Jesus as an ambassador it’s going to affect and radically change the way you live. In fact Paul says in Philippians 1:27a (NCV),
“Be sure that you live in a way that brings honor to the Good News of Christ.”
This implies that you can’t claim to be a follower of Jesus without living your life as He did.
When you get up in the morning and head out for your day remember that you represent Jesus. In this message, I will be talking about our role, our responsibilities and our reward as ambassadors of Jesus.
