We are blessed with the unique opportunity to act as an ambassador to entire world representing the God of Heaven and Earth. We don't merely represent a country like in the Olympics or a state like in Congress. No we speak on behalf of the Living God, that is why it is so important that we are mindful of our conduct and our actions because to we project to the World the charac
So yes we represent Christ for the nations but what happens when it is time for us to move on to a new place with new people and be His Ambassador in a "strange land". What happens when God is trying to telling us "You have done well here but it is time for you to move on, I am calling to to be my ambassador somewhere else." I mean God is always shuffling His People to different locations look at Moses (Exodus 3:10), Abraham (Genesis 12:1), Joseph (Genesis 38:28, 39:1, 40:20, 41:45-46), Peter and Andrew (Matthew 4:19), and/or James and John (Matthew 4:21-22), etc. God called all of these people to leave their current situation, occupation, comfort zone, or home. He desired for them to represent Him to the world in a new location.
The message of the Gospel spreads not just through the internet or television. It spreads through one on one interaction. It spreads through relationship building. It spreads because people get an up close and personal experiences of who Jesus is by the way we conduct our lives. That's why the Paul refers to us as living letters that all can read (2 Corinthians 3:2). It is also why Jesus wants us to do good and be mindful of our conduct so the World can see and bring glory to God (Matthew 5:16, 1 Peter 2:12, Philippians 2:15).
So now the question is...are you willing to go. Are you willing to give up everything and go where God sends you. Now I am not saying just quit paying your bills, abandon your family, and go. No I am not talking about crazy fanatical stupidity. I am simple saying if you know God is telling you to move to a different state, part of town, or even a country because He has something new for you to do....stop rationalizing why you can't go and follow God.
There is only one person who was disappointed after He chose to follow God and that was Jonah. Jonah's disappointment was due to his lack of mercy for others (Jonah 4:1-3). But everyone else mentioned in the second paragraph above did not regret leaving their lives and following God's desire for them. I know leaving and moving to a new place seems daunting and scary (And I mean I really know because me and my family did it three years ago and we are about to do it again...fun times...lol). I know it appears as if you will have to start over. But what JOY! I have for you because God is working in you His Will and His Good Pleasure (Philippians 2:13). So set sail to your boat friend and look forward to what lies ahead of you (Philippians 3:14). Stay focused, you can do this. "In His JOY!"
