Ambassadors


We are all called to be ambassadors, but how do we actually live as ambassadors? What does this look like? In this session, through the example of Daniel, we see that doing the diplomatic work of Christ involves being formed by the local church, knowing God’s mission, learning the cultural language, and engaging in diplomacy.

Episode outline

  • Establish an Ambassadorial Community—The church nurtures our identity as Christians.
  • Know the Mission—Our stories only make sense in light of God’s story; our vocations only make sense in light of God's vocation.
  • Learn the Language—Understanding the influences that shape our society and how the gospel speaks to them is important for every Christian. Take time to recognize the goodness and brokenness in the world around you.
  • Do the Work of Diplomacy—We are to reframe where we are in light of God’s purposes and cultivate flourishing for those around us.

Sample discussion questions

  • What aspects of ambassadorship stood out for you in the stories of George Sanker (teacher) and Jennifer Wiseman (astrophysicist)?
  • Don Flow works in the automobile industry. How did he reframe the purpose of his business from a biblical perspective?
  • What did Don Flow identify as the dominant secular view about the purpose of business? What issues did he have with how that got worked out in practice?
  • In one area of your life, how could you reframe a sense of purpose and intent in light of God’s story? Why does God care about this?
