“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).


You and I are ambassadors of the King and His Kingdom. So, as a child of God and a citizen of the Kingdom, you are sent as an ambassador to take care of diplomatic business in the earth on behalf of your King. You are here to represent Jesus, and you are limited only to speak what your government (the Kingdom of God) has declared and what your constitution (the Word of God) has allowed. 

And, just in case you don’t know what He said, He’s given you the Word of the Kingdom in the Bible. His Word is also your “Bill of Rights,” which tells what your benefits are and what God promises to do for you. 

Again, we’re ambassadors of Christ and citizens of the Kingdom of God first. We’re not to promote our denomination but the gospel of the Kingdom. God does plant believers in local churches for spiritual covering, discipleship, and fellowship; however, it’s when we get revelation and understanding of our citizenship in the Kingdom of God that we can accomplish what God has assigned us to do for His glory


Father, thank you that I am reconciled to You to be an ambassador for Jesus Christ and a citizen of Your kingdom. Holy Spirit, fill me with revelation and understanding, and empower me to accomplish what God has assigned me to do for His glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
