Ambassadors to the Nations

Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.  2 Corinthians 5:20 (KJV)
So we are Christ's ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We [as Christ's personal representatives] beg you for His sake to lay hold of the divine favor [now offered you] and be reconciled to God.  2 Corinthians 5:20 (AMP)

Just as nations send ambassadors to represent their countries, you’ve been appointed by God to represent Jesus on the earth.  This may seem like a big responsibility, but He has equipped you for this.  He has given you His name, the power of His Word and put His own Spirit inside you.  When people see you they see Jesus. You are Christ’s representative here on earth!
