We are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.
—2nd Corinthians 5:20
“The Apostle says that we are ambassadors of God, representing Christ, the messiah king, the regent of that last kingdom. When the British ambassador is in the British Embassy in Berlin, he is not subject to the laws of the German Reich. The grounds of the embassy, only the laws of the country he represents are valid.
“We are ambassadors of the kingdom of God. This means that we do nothing at all except what the king of God’s kingdom would himself do for his kingdom. When we take this service upon ourselves we enter into mortal danger.”
Brother Arnold was a true emissary of the King who knew by practical experience in Nazi Germany what it was to live in the Reign.
