THE ROLE AND PRIVILEGES OF AN AMBASSADOR

June 17, 2016

In our world, an ambassador is the highest-ranking representative sent abroad to a specific nation or international organization, and they represent their country in lieu of their national leader.

In 2 Corinthians 5:20a, Paul said, “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ.” In this statement, he was addressing the believers in Corinth and reminding them of their position within the body of Christ. Also, our status of being in the world but not of the world is stated by Jesus in His prayer to the Father in John 17:14, 16 & 18. This title and status have remained the same for believers in this present century; so let me share some more information on the role and privileges of an ambassador.

An ambassador is not elected but appointed by his national leader, and he is usually handpicked because of the stellar qualities that he possesses. To be effective in his assignment, an ambassador has to be respected, dependable, a good manager, and a skillful negotiator. The ambassador represents his home country and is committed to the interest of his country. It is the ambassador’s duty to be influential for his government, and when questioned, he never shares his personal position, but he speaks his nation’s official position. Also, ambassadors are responsible for determining the political climate, analyzing important events, and reporting critical information to their national leader.

While performing his responsibilities abroad, the ambassador has access to all of his nation’s wealth. He is protected and entirely covered by his government. He is given a salary, housing, transportation, and food. While abroad, his place of residence may be appealing; however, the ambassador does not attempt to become a citizen there. Lastly, the ambassador can only be recalled home by his leader.

Keeping all of these facts in mind, believers as ambassadors have an awesome responsibility and kingdom rights. While we work in this earth, we can rest in the knowledge that we are covered and have the backing of a higher power. We don’t have to worry about our needs for they will be provided. When we speak, we are to speak with authority the Word and thoughts of our leader (God). We can do the job because the Great One is in us. Finally, as a kingdom ambassador hold fast to these Words of Jesus that He spoke to his disciples in Luke 22:29-30. Reading from The Message Bible, it says, “Now I confer on you the royal authority my Father conferred on me so you can eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and be strengthened as you take up responsibilities among the congregations of God’s people.”
