Ambassador or Christian?

 

Which would you like to be?

Christian– Any follower of Christ
Ambassador– an authorized messenger or representative

2 Corinthians 5:20
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Me personally would like to be an authorized official with a mission sent to lands for my king. Paul calls us Ambassadors of Christ, so (Ephesians 6) Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. As an Ambassador we have rank, and it’s time to fulfill God’s calling.
