There are some people who love to tell others that they are church going, Bible believing Christians, then, when church is over, they turn around and roll in the same sin the rest of the world does, and see nothing wrong with it.
A friend of mine, “Jill”, shared a post from a friend of her’s expressing how great it was that she and her female partner have been together for a while and they were finally going to get married. Jill gave her best wishes and told them she was happy for them and for what they were going to do. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen Jill post stuff like this. She attends church and claims to know her bible, yet she is a huge supporter of the lgbt community and what they stand for, even though it goes against everything God teaches us in the bible. I confronted her about her support and how she should know better then to delight in their sin. She and the couple getting married came back and attacked me for being a bigot. Jill was very vocal about how I was wrong and that God never said gays shouldn’t be together. I was very heartbroken to see Jill take the stand she did, and to this day she still promotes the homosexual lifestyle as a legitimate Christian choice.
An ambassador is a diplomatic official, of the highest rank, sent by one sovereign or state, to another, as it’s resident representative. Some synonyms for the position are agent, emissary or minister. 1 Peter 2:9 tells us that God has chosen us to be the ones to speak for Him, telling the world how He brought us out of the darkness of sin, and into the light. Jesus also tells His disciples (and to us) that we should go into the whole world and preach the gospel. So God has appointed us and is sending us out into the kingdom of the world to represent Him and His kingdom.
As ambassadors, we reflect the image of our King to the nations and people living there. It’s our job to truthfully represent Him and everything He stands for: no matter what. We are the light of the world and we should be shining that light for everyone to see. If anyone should ask, we should be able to tell them why we live our lives for Jesus and rightly reveal His truth for their lives and the whole world.
There are many who claim to speak for Jesus but they go and deny Him by their actions and words. These false ambassadors have been given a warning from Jesus Himself:
32 “Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven. 33 But whoever denies Me before men, him I will also deny before My Father who is in heaven.
Examine yourself. Make sure when you make it known that you represent Jesus, you’re speaking the truth. Don’t let the world corrupt your message and turn your thinking around so you look and act more like them then the one you claim to speak for.
