You are an ambassador of Christ - 2 Cor 5:20. An ambassador is one who represents one nation in front of another. An ambassador is empowered by his/her home nation to stand on behalf of the home nation. An ambassador has diplomatic immunity and is subject to the laws of the home nation and not the host nation. Likewise the embassy, where the ambassador resides, is subject to the laws of the home nation and not the laws of the host nation. The embassy is considered to be an extension of the home nation.
As an ambassador of Christ you have similar attributes. You are only subject to the laws and the economy of the Kingdom of God. While you abide by the laws of nation in which you reside, you are not subject to the issues of the world. God has called you to a higher life. You must elevate your mind and attitude in order to live this higher life. Your success has been determined by God. Don't let anyone or any circumstance tell you otherwise.
