Ambassador for Christ. An ambassador is the highest ranking diplomat who represents their country. Ambassadors are usually accredited to a foreign sovereign or government, or to an international organization, to serve as the official representative of their country. In everyday usage it applies to the ranking government representative stationed in a foreign capital. The host country typically allows the ambassador control of specific territory called an embassy, whose territory, staff, and even vehicles are generally afforded diplomatic immunity in the host country. The Apostle Paul indicated that he was an Ambassador for Christ in Ephesians 6:18-20 “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” As Christians, we assume the role of an Ambassador when we walk here on Earth. Our citizenship is in the heavenlies with Christ so we are asked to set our affections on the things above, not on things on this Earth. The lesson on September 21, 2008 taught on the Nations, and the role of an Ambassador. A handout was used during the lesson
