Ambassador ♥️

In many countries An Ambassador is an official envoy, especially a high-ranking diplomat who represents a state and is usually accredited to another sovereign state or to an international organization as the resident representative of their own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment according to wikipedia.  It can also be used in representation of businesses or any organization.  The Webster defines it as a diplomatic official of the highest rank, sent by one sovereign or state to another as its resident representative.  This is a very dangerous job because when people go to a different country as an ambassador serving as a representative, they can translate a message in a wrong way.  This responsibility gives a person the power to speak on behalf of another.  This means that whatever a person does as an ambassador or representative can bring good or bad credit to another, weather intentionally or unintentional.  An ambassador represents and speaks on behalf of a company, business or church.  We never want to be an ambassador for Coke products but not interested in drinking Coke but openly drink Sprite.  The same concept goes for our faith.  As children of God we are representatives of the Gospel.  Our lives must reflect the love, grace and patience of Christ.  In our daily loves what image do we reflect to our loved ones, friends.  It can sometimes be difficult to hold ourselves to Christ standard of love and represent the kingdom well.  I know personally how difficult it can be to serve God but not be able to effectively serve people.  Most times it is our ability to serve and love our brother or sister despite opposition that will dictate and display our true relationship with Christ.  John 13:35 says By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  Our love walk for one another is the mirror of our relationship with God.  How we effectively represent Christ is in our ability to unequivocally express love to people we see each and every day.  I have in some situations failed at this but understanding that the word is clear when it says in 1 John 4:20 If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?  This is such a tough assignment because it is hard to love people that are hard to like.  My reality is that the world wont come to Christ if they see a group of believers in a constant skirmish, a truculent or contending with one another.  The way that we love one another is what the world sees and how the world will determine if they will be a part of God’s family.  It breaks God’s heart when brothers and sisters don’t get along.  It breaks Gods heart when we treat one another and how we regard thoughts of envy, jealousy and strife in our hearts towards one another. So we must challenge ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit to be the final authority on our ability to love, show love and be love.  I am so thankful that Jesus did not love me with a long handle spoon.  My prayer is that God will help me to do the same.  I want to give our bloggers something to consider.  What can we do to secure a believer to Christ by displaying love unconditional towards one another?
