Heavenly ambassadors (Part I) 

Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 5: 20 "We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God "

The verse tells us that those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior perform the function of Christ's ambassadors on earth. The Bible says that Christ is seated in heaven at the right hand of the Father (Eph 1: 20) but we are His ambassadors on earth. 

The US ambassador in Burundi does not depend on the Burundian authorities but he depends on the White House. When there is a problem in the United States and the reporters ask him questions, he does not respond according to his convictions or his way of seeing things, but he responds according to the thinking of the American president. He is his representative in Burundi and the American president gives him everything he needs to do his job properly. The building of an embassy in a country can show us the greatness and the power of the country he represents. Spiritually speaking, we represent the kingdom of God and everything we do should give glory to the Lord. 

In the verse of the day, we said that we are Christ’s ambassadors. The word "ambassadors" is translated from the Greek "presbeuo" which means “act as a representative”. 

If we are Christ's ambassadors, we are supposed to depend on Christ in all that we do here on earth. We are here on earth to represent him and to defend His interests. 

In the chapters that will follow, we will see that as ambassadors of Christ, our thoughts and actions must conform to Him. We will see that everything we do on earth should depend on the kingdom of heaven, and that even our protection and financial provision depend on heaven. Our desires and ambitions on earth must die to give space to heavenly desires.
