What is our role and function as Christ’s ambassadors in this world

May grace and peace from our Lord Jesus Christ be multiplied in your life! I believe that the word I am sharing with you here strengthens you and helps you continue your journey into eternal life.

Today I want to finish talking about what our role and function as Christ’s ambassadors in this world is. During several days we have been establishing that we are Christ’s ambassadors on earth and God seeks to reconcile the world with Himself. We also saw that we are the representatives of Heavenly Kingdom and are sent to ascertain God’s will and values. In order for us to be successful in our calling, we must understand that God’s nature and the life of Christ must reflect on us and through us. That is what gives strength to our witness as Christ’s ambassadors.

It says in the Bible:

 «Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the LORD will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you, the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising» (Isaiah, 60:1-3).

This is a very strong passage of Scripture that also talks about our role on earth. God desires to save people and direct them into His Kingdom, and He does it through His children. God tells us that first we need to shine ourselves. He says that our light has already come, and we do not live as the people without the knowledge and understanding of God’s ways, His goals and the true life. When you and I will rise and start shining by declaring the knowledge of God and demonstrating His power, His ways, when we start demonstrating our submission to Him and His Word – and do it in any situation and circumstances, despite trials and difficulties, – then people will see our lives and will be able to see God’s glory upon us. The reflection of His glory will make a lot of difference for the people around us. We will be able to get through trials and tribulations due to the knowledge of God and our status in Him. The realization of the fact that we contain the nature of God and His light within us helps us to endure the difficulties with dignity. When the people will see it, they will begin listening to us and pay attention to our words, because they will see the glory of God shining through us. And when that happens, darkness will back off. This darkness is our problems and the lack of knowledge. This darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the people, but the Lord will shine upon us; His revelation, His Word, His ways will shine brightly in us. When we know God’s ways and walk in them, then God’s glory will be seen in us and the people will see this glory and will come to it.

«… the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising» (Isaiah, 60:3).

God desires us to realize our unique role and calling in this world. You and I are not saved just to avoid hell and go to heaven. You and I are saved to be the answer for the earth, to be God’s voice on earth. You and I are saved so that God would have an abode on earth. You and I are saved so that people could find God and get to know Him personally, know His will and His ways through us.

Be blessed! May God help us all in our calling and our walk!
