Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. II Corinthians 5:20
II Corinthians 5:17-20
An ambassador is the highest-ranking official of a diplomatic service with authority to serve as the “official representative” of his/her country in a foreign land. As a Christian, God has called you to serve on this earth, representing Him as the ‘ambassador of heaven.’ Your assignment is to further His policies here on earth, i.e. ensure that His will is done on earth as it is in heaven.
God’s primary diplomatic interest on earth is that no man should perish, but that all will be saved. It is your core duty to reconcile the unsaved to Christ by ‘marketing’ the Gospel to them, positively representing your ‘home country’ and issuing immigrant visas to them. God first reconciled you to Himself and then gave you the ministry of reconciliation to reconcile others to Him. Also, God wills that all men are free from the devil’s oppression. Thus, you were given the authority to use the name of Jesus when you pray, to stop whatever represents the forces of evil from operating in the affairs of men.
As an ambassador for Christ, you have been given diplomatic immunity against any satanic assault. You are entitled to heavens protection. So, the devil has no right to harass you. You can’t be arrested by any infirmity or kept bound in any demonic prison. You are operating under the laws of the kingdom of heaven here on earth and that in itself is immunity against the forces of wickedness.
Earthly ambassadors have diplomatic passports that grant them access to any country they are traveling to with ease. They are treated with respect at airports; and irrespective of the length of the queue, they get quick and easy passage. You shouldn’t expect less as God’s ambassador; you must trust God to open doors of favors for you. Expect doors that are closed to others to open to you, and for men to treat you with preference and honor.
Most interestingly, as God’s ambassador, your supply and funding comes from your home country which is ‘heaven.’ So, heaven’s prosperity should naturally follow you. Your wealth is proportional to the wealth of heaven, not to that of your earthly country of residence. Heaven’s supply is limitless…hallelujah, your needs can be abundantly furnished!
Knowing all we have read this morning about how God sees you, before you leave your house, go to the mirror and say to the person you see within, “Introducing, the Honourable Ambassador of Heaven.”
+ Pray that you will use all of God’s equipment in your disposal to serve as a worthy ambassador who works for the good of the Kingdom of heaven
+ Pray and enforce every privilege you have as an ambassador to manifest in your life, just as it is in heaven.
