A few years ago as I was flying into a city, one of the flight attendants suddenly recognized me. She was a believer and as we began talking, she said, “This is my pulpit.” She pointed to the front of the plane. As we talked, she spoke real loud so everybody around could hear that she was a believer. This woman was basically giving a quick witness, right then and there.
Later I thought, She’s got a good point. You know, all of us, if we’re followers of Jesus Christ, are His ambassadors. We all have a pulpit that He’s called us to witness from. It doesn’t matter where we are, or what we do. We’re here to represent the King of Kings. And what an honorable position!
When you think about it, an ambassador is appointed to speak for the country they come from. When an ambassador speaks, the other government listens. One great thing about an ambassador is you don’t have to invent the message. You’re told what to say, so you say it.
When you share the Good News, don’t go around groveling like you’re some slave. You are an ambassador of Jesus Christ! He’s given you the clear and simple Gospel message to spread. As His ambassador, you can share it with dignity, with class, with authority, and with humility. What a privilege!
