Ambassadorship

Ambassadorship
  1. An ambassador does not appoint himself. We are appointed by Christ (2CO 5:18-20).
  2. An ambassador does not support himself. God supplies all our needs (EPH 1:3; PHI 4:19).
  3. An ambassador is not a citizen of the country where he is sent. We are citizens of heaven (PHI 3:20).
  4. An ambassador has instructions in written form. We have the Bible (2TI 3:16).
  5. An ambassador cannot take insults personally; he is accepted or rejected not on his own merit but because of who he repre- sents. We are not to take it personally when we are despised and rejected by those who hate Jesus Christ (JOH 15:19-21).
  6. An ambassador does not enter a country to profit himself. We are on earth to serve the Lord (2CO 5:15).
  7. An ambassador is a personal representative of someone else; everything he does and says reflects on the one who sent him. We are representatives of the Lord Jesus Christ by action as well as by word (JOH 13:35; JOH 17:23).
  8. An ambassador's perspective is service; his prospect is reward. We are commissioned for service and will be rewarded (MAT 5:12; 2JO 1:8; REV 22:12).
  9. An ambassador is recalled when war is declared. The recall of all believers at the Rapture of the Church will announce the beginning of the end for Satan (2TH 2:1-12).
