We are ambassadors: Henri J. M. Nouwen

Spiritually you do not belong to the world. And this is precisely why you are sent into the world. Your family and your friends, your colleagues and your competitors, and all the people you may meet on your journey through life are all searching for more than survival. Your presence among them as the one who is sent will allow them to catch a glimpse of the real life. (Henri J. M. Nouwen, Life of the Beloved. New York: Crossroad, 2002, p. 132)

I thank one of my daughters for recommending Nouwen's brief book to my wife and me.

2 Corinthians 5:20a Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. (ESV)

What kind of ambassador am I?

Thanks for reading.
