Ambassadors of Christ
Ambassadors are trusted messengers who represent their county on foreign soil. They are granted authority to speak on behalf of their head of state and to advance the interests of those who commissioned them. In Luke 10, Jesus sent a large group of disciples to serve as His ambassadors. They represented His kingdom, communicated His message, and displayed His authority. Our Lord continues to empower and send ambassadors today: every believer who has known His grace though His atoning work on the cross.
