I am an Ambassador
If you have your Bibles Please turn with me to
Now then, we are Ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us, we implore you on Christs behalf, be reconciled to God.
Now according to the Encyclopedia Ambassadors are appointed by the President, but subject to the approval of the State.
Saints did you get that. You see it’s the same in Gods Kingdom. God wants to appoint you to be an Ambassador for the Kingdom of Heaven, but you first have to be approved by Jesus. And to get that approval you have to be Saved and washed clean in the blood of Jesus. Then you can go to God to be divinely appointed.
Now according to the Encyclopedia you are entitled to certain privileges as an Ambassador.
#1~ You get to enjoy Diplomatic Immunity, meaning that you are exempt from Search, Arrest or Prosecution.
#2~ You are paid well by the Government. The Government picks up all expenses for you Food, Clothing, Cars, Travel and you get to stay at a very expensive and beautiful Embassy. Your whole family is entitled to these benefits. Even your Childrens College is paid for and all Medical Expense.
Now along with these privileges comes responsibilities. The Ambassador has to travel to other countries and tell them about their country and try to get the other countries to see things in their countries views on political matters, to be on their side so to speak. And that can be difficult because not all Countries agree on Political issues.
Now we as Ambassadors for Christ have the same Benefits and Responsibilities. Now our responsibilities as an Ambassador of Christ are to Obey God’s Commandments, Above all Love one another. We have to be open to what the Spirit instructs us to do, not be judgmental, and we have to have the fruit of the Spirit that is found in Galatians 5:22-33. These fruits are the Personality that we must have. We must have LOVE,JOY, PEACE, SELF CONTROL, LONGSUFFERING,FAITH, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS and MEEKNESS. The Bible teaches us against these there is no law. Meaning that if we have this personality in our everyday life that we are exempt from Search, Arrest or Prosecution. Our main responsibility is to go out to all the Nations and Preach the Word of God. We are to tell people about Jesus. You can do this anywhere you are at. The grocery store, the shopping center or go to someones home and talk with them, you do not always have to leave the Country. We are trying to get the sinners our countries way, our country being the Kingdom of God.
Now with these Responsibilities comes Benefits.
#1~ We get to travel at times to spread the news about Jesus.
#2~ God equips us with Gifts to give out on his behalf. These gifts are found in 1Corinthians 12:8-10
For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of Knowledge, to another Faith, to another gift’s of Healing, to another working of Miracles, to another Prophecy, to another the Discerning of spirits, to another Different Kinds of Tongues, and to another the Interpretation of Tongues.
