The Bible says if you are a believer, you are an ambassador for Christ. Let’s explore Bible Verses For Ambassadors so we understand our important role. Social media influencers call themselves “brand ambassadors” and created their titles and positions. But the Holy Bible gives authority to Ambassadors for Christ. Let’s dig deeper into the Bible.
In the original Greek language, the word ambassador in 2 Corinthians 5:20 is translated to mean: to be older, prior by birth or in age; to be an ambassador, act as an ambassador; act as a representative (figuratively, preacher).
In a modern dictionary, the word ambassador means an official envoy; a diplomatic agent of the highest rank accredited to a foreign government or sovereign as the resident representative of his or her own government or sovereign or appointed for a special and often temporary diplomatic assignment; an authorized representative or messenger.
