28 Nov We Are Ambassadors
Paul wrote a letter to the Corinthian church and tried to capture the idea of what God has done for them. He was grasping for the best idea to convey how God saw them in the earth today, and of all the ways he examined, he decided that the best description of a Christian would be that of an Ambassador (2 Corinthians 5:20).
Wouldn’t it be strange if the American ambassador to another country was afraid to stand up and say, “I represent America”? What would the American government do if the ambassador was afraid to state its point of view?
An ambassador is the sent one of the U.S.A. Do we think he or she is being arrogant if they declare that they are sent to a certain country on behalf of the U.S.A.? No! That’s a good thing and we expect them to do that! So why do people in Christian circles accuse others of being proud or arrogant when they do the same thing acting as an ambassador of heaven?
As an ambassador I have a right to speak for the Kingdom as long as I am speaking the message of the Kingdom, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. These are the words of my country.
The devil knows you are an ambassador, and God knows you are an ambassador. When are you going to realize that you are an ambassador? In Acts 19:15 the demon spoke to the seven sons of Sceva, “Jesus I know and Paul I know, but who are you?” The devil will know you if you take a stand.
An Ambassador doesn’t have to pray to act as an ambassador. He doesn’t need to pray to exercise his or her authority. All they need to do is act like who their government says they are. They don’t need to pray to get their passports stamped or have their visits approved. No, an ambassador has the power to act and they don’t wait around to do their job. Don’t wait on heaven anymore. Act today!
