Kingdom Ambassadors

“They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.” (John 17:16)

The dictionary.com definition of an ambassador is a diplomatic official of the highest rank, sent by a sovereign or state to another as its representative. We are God’s official representatives assigned by heaven on earth to enforce his laws and customs within this earthly region and territory. As such we have been given diplomatic immunity and authority, so that what is permitted to affect others is not allowed to affect us.

We are cautioned not to think and act like the world but to be set apart and to be different. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

(Romans 12:2) Ambassadors cannot afford to become overly involved in the affairs of the country which they are assigned to. We are aware that although we are living within this territory, that our job is to safeguard the interest of the territory that we represent.

Paul makes reference to us as soldiers who have been enlisted to carry out specific assignments. “No soldier gets entangled in civilian pursuits, since his aim is to please the one who enlisted him.” (2 Timothy 2:4) We each have an assignment which we have been enlisted to pursue for the establishment of the Kingdom of God. We need to work with other Ambassadors and soldiers who are working on behalf of the same region.

Unity is a weapon of strength in establishing the kingdom and sharing heavenly intelligence to equip other believers in this pursuit to establish kingdom rule and dominion. “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.”” (Revelation 11:15)

  1. May God continue to bless you, your family and your ministry. I’m studying to become a Social Worker at UCC and also wants to lecture Literature and Language and the University level. I love English, but tend to get the lowest grades at time. But I am working on it. Thanks for sharing this devotional, I was indeed blessed.
