How to Be an Ambassador of Jesus and Spread the Gospel

In politics, different government officials fulfill different roles. Presidents and prime ministers act as the head of state. Finance ministers draw up a budget for government income and expenditure.

Ambassadors have a very significant role. They represent the country in a foreign land. While a president may be the head of a nation, meeting with heads of other nations, an ambassador is the representative of that nation in a foreign country. 

The Bible calls us ambassadors of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20). This means that, while He intercedes before the Father for us (Romans 8:34), we represent Him, bringing the kingdom of God to those around us who do not know Him yet. 

When we become Christians, we take on the responsibility of sharing the good news with others. This should be our primary focus and personal joy. As followers of Christ, we ought to be consumed with a zeal for thinking up new ways to share the Gospel.

Disseminate the True Gospel 

The central message of the Gospel is that Jesus Christ came to earth to rescue sinners. Our role is to help others find their way to Christ. We cannot lead people to make the right choice; we can only point them in the right direction and, with hearts filled with love for them, try and convince them why Christ is the answer to their deepest hunger and emptiness.

A Little Kindness Goes a Long Way

Jesus says that His burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30). This means that we don’t need to exhaust ourselves to the point of burnout trying to find the right way to evangelize. Simply reaching out to others, telling them that God loves them and sacrificed everything for them, is a great start. The Bible and involvement in a Spirit-led church and community are also vital as people navigate the nuances of their faith.

Negative experiences with Christians are a significant factor in many people abandoning their faith. When discussing matters of faith, it’s best to do it with an open mind and a kind heart.

If you approach others with kindness and the desire to share your beliefs, you could find that they are more receptive. 

The Importance of Everyday Conversations

Sharing your beliefs openly and honestly in everyday situations is vital. There’s no need for a manual or blueprint for sharing the Gospel. The question, “Can I talk to you about Jesus?” can be an icebreaker.

Don’t assume anything about someone who avoids conversation with you. You can’t pressure someone to talk to you by raising your voice or trying to force them to.

Establishing credibility with others is essential before they open up to you meaningfully. Your patience will be rewarded.

Integrity is Recognized and Esteemed

Preaching to others is where some believers’ true colors start to show. They become “spiritual” and never question anything, worry about anything, or commit sins.

A person with such a high level of spirituality apparently cannot accept that they have a lot to learn about the perspectives of those who are not like themselves.

Sadly, not enough Christians today dare to tell it like it is. Some people are fearful that others will judge them negatively if they tell the truth.

Honesty is generally regarded as admirable. Christians gain more credibility when they stop seeing individuals as numbers or “sinners” and start treating them as whole beings.

What You Know Is What You Can Share 

As you grow in your own faith, take time to consider how you can share the exciting things you discover with others. A vast majority of Christians have not put enough thought into their faith. If you read the Bible, pray, and learn about Christianity, you’ll realize that you, too, have a lot to say about God and the Good News.

Persevere and Think about the Long Term

An evangelist’s message should constantly focus on God’s grace and love, which resulted in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Christians need to remember that evangelism is not a one-and-done job. Trust that God will rescue those you care about as you try to convince them that Jesus is the way.

Conclusion

It may be highly satisfying to serve as an ambassador for Jesus and share His Good News with people. Remember that you are a representative of Jesus Christ and His message. Sharing your faith with others, engaging in missionary activity, and living a life that exemplifies Jesus’ teachings are all effective ways to further the spread of the Gospel.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near to reach least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet, Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. 

We live in a time when many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and practical training and coaching strategy, believers share the Gospel in their nations and cultures. 

Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
