Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ; 2 Corinthians 5:20. Whether we know it or not, we, as Christians, are representatives of God on the earth. We go about doing the things we do, saying the things we say, and looking the way we look as a representative, an extension, if you will, of God.
Think about it…what if the spokesman of a fitness facility was a big overweight guy? Or…a guy with real Billy-Bob teeth was advertising a new dentist’s office? Or…the #1 gal on the Top Ten Worst-dressed list was in front of the camera for a clothing store? You wouldn’t think much about the business, would you? Well, what kind of an image are we showing to the world when we carry the name of Christian and have a fish symbol on our cars but act badly, talk hateful, and look sloppy? Not too good of one! Today, think of yourself as an actual representative of God with a sign around your neck as you go about your business. You are, you know.
