We’re Meant to Represent Our King in This Foreign Land

Author Melinda Penner Published on 05/10/2016

The Bible says that Christians are ambassadors for Christ. At STR, we’ve highlighted three skills an ambassador needs to develop to be effective representing our King: knowledge, wisdom, and character. I’ve been reminded recently that essential to being an ambassador is being a representative in a foreign country. For most of us in Western culture, our culture hasn’t been all that foreign to us. But it’s becoming increasingly foreign territory populated by people who speak a different language and have very different values. But that’s where ambassadors belong. This foreign land is precisely where ambassadors are meant to be representing our Sovereign.
