Bible

Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven

Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.

– 2 Corinthians 5:20 NKJV

We are ambassadors for Christ

Embassy –   office or residence of an ambassador

You are an ambassador for Christ. So, is your home an embassy?


Pour yourself a cup of tea, sit down and visit with Ludmilla, a dear 82-year old widow living in the Czech Republic. Outside her home hangs a plaque that reads, “Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Embassy of the Kingdom of Heaven

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.

– 2 Corinthians 4:7 NIV

The above verse is referring to believers but I find an application here for our homes also.

Our home should be like the jar of clay.

It’s not about how beautiful the home looks but what is inside.

Ludmilla is truly living as a representative of God’s kingdom here on earth.

Her example is one to follow.

Do you think of your home as an Embassy of the Kingdom?

What makes a home an Embassy of the Kingdom?
