Confidence at Being Christ’s Ambassador
By Rick Warren

We are . . . Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.” 2 Corinthians 5:20 (NIV)

Your job in God’s family is to invite others to join the family. In fact, you are an ambassador of Christ. That means that, everywhere you go, you represent Jesus.

The Bible says, We are . . . Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians 5:20 NIV).

Now, you may be thinking, “I'm just not qualified to be an ambassador for Christ." You think it requires a special personality or being good at persuading people. Or perhaps you struggle to find the confidence you need to tell people about the hope you have in Jesus.

Here are five truths that will give you confidence to be an ambassador for Jesus Christ:

Everybody has the same longings you have. You didn't stop being a human when you were born again into the family of God. You still have the same basic human drives and desires everyone else does. That means what you’re offering to people—how to live a life of purpose—is what everybody longs for.

Everybody has the same questions you have. All those questions you have in your mind—like "Who am I?” and “Does my life have purpose?”—are from God. They’re not small questions, but they're the questions everyone asks. And the answers, of course, are found in God’s Word.

Most people don’t really know what they believe, and they often contradict themselves. For example, some people say there are no absolutes in life. Well, that statement alone is an absolute statement. But when you share the hope of Jesus, it brings clarity to people’s lives.

Listen for the key that will open their heart to Jesus. That key is their unmet need or hidden hurt. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ. But people come to Jesus for many reasons—many times through their painful experiences.

People have excuses, but you have the Holy Spirit and the truth. You're not alone when you tell people about God’s plan of salvation through Jesus. God is with you, but he is also working in the other person's heart while you're talking through the Holy Spirit.

So many times, people lack confidence in sharing their faith. The good news is, God will always tell you what to say when you need to say it—and he’ll do it in such an amazing way!
