An ambassador is an accredited diplomat[Jesus Christ] sent by a country[Heaven] to a foreign country[broken world needing reconciliation]. Christ was God's ambassador who promoted a specific activity[confess, repent, and believe in the one whom the father sent], and now we are Christ's ambassadors.

This is a tremendous call to be an ambassador for Christ, and it carries with it a gospel imperative; be reconciled to God. With imperatives, we know there must be indicatives, and the gospel indicative is that, "in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation." And that, "for our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Cor 5:18; 20). Think about the level of purpose you have as an ambassador of Christ, and the message you carry as one, huge right?
