THE NAME ROYAL AMBASSADORS?
The RA Motto, "We are Ambassadors for Christ,"
not only gives the organization its name, but also gives
the boys and leaders a lifestyle goal. This motto is taken
from Scripture, specifically 2 Corinthians 5:20.
The Scripture passage 2 Corinthians 5:17-20
describes the purpose of Royal Ambassadors. While the RA
motto is found in verse 20, the other verses sum up Paul's
declaration of why we need to be ambassadors for Christ.
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation;
old things have passed away, and look, new things have come.
Now everything is from God, who reconciled us to Himself
through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:
that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself,
not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed
the message of reconciliation to us. Therefore, we are ambassadors
for Christ; certain that God is appealing through us, we
plead on Christ's behalf, 'Be reconciled to God.'"
(2 Cor. 5:17-20, HCSB)
As a Royal Ambassador I will
do my best:
to become a well-informed,
responsible follower of Christ;
to have a Christ-like concern
for all people;
to learn how to carry the
message of Christ around the world;
to work with others in sharing
to keep myself clean
and healthy in mind and body
what are the ‘7 C’s’ anyway?
