He must have some basic knowledge. Minimally, he must know the character, mind, and purposes of his king.
2Wisdoman artful method
Knowledge must be deployed in a skillful way. There’s an element of wisdom, a tactical and artful diplomacy that makes his message persuasive.
3Characteran attractive manner
Because an ambassador brings himself along in everything he does, his personal maturity and individual virtue can either make or break the message.
These three areas—knowledge, wisdom, and character—are the three areas all Ambassadors for Christ need to continue to grow in. Sometimes the task can be confusing and even overwhelming, but breaking the job down into these three areas makes it simpler. You can lay a foundation you can build on for the rest of your life. Plan to grow in knowledge, tactical wisdom, and character to be a high-impact ambassador for Jesus Christ. If you are learning and growing in these three ways, you’ll be able to say with conviction:
"I am an Ambassador for Jesus Christ. I can explain precisely what that means, and I can clearly defend my conviction in the truth of Christianity in an attractive manner that commends the message."
It’s not that hard to do, either, when you cultivate a sensible faith by increasing your knowledge, sharpening your tactical wisdom, and building your character.
