πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Are All Believers Ambassadors?

β€œSomeone suggested that only Paul and the other apostles were ambassadors, not all believers (II Cor.Β 5:20). True?”

In II Cor.Β 5:18, Paul says, β€œGod… hath reconciledΒ usΒ to Himself… and hath givenΒ to usΒ the ministry of reconciliation.” Here we see that the people who have been given the ministry of reconciliation are the same people who have been reconciled to God. This cannot be limited to Paul and other leaders; it must include all believers, for we have all been reconciled.

Paul thenΒ definesΒ the ministry of reconciliation as that which takes place when β€œambassadors” say to the lost, β€œbe ye reconciled to God” (II Cor.Β 5:20). This means that the ambassadors proclaiming reconciliation in Verse 20 must consist of all the reconciled people who were given the ministry of reconciliation in Verse 18.

This also points out that, while β€œthe world” has been reconciled to God (II Cor.Β 5:19), the unsaved have not been reconciled in the same sense as believers, or else they wouldΒ alsoΒ be Christ’s ambassadors. The reconciling of the world is that which God gave Jews and GentilesΒ corporately, once the Jews had been cast away (Rom.Β 11:15), just as the Gentiles had been at the Tower of Babel. source
