If we are faithful to God, acting as true disciples of Jesus, listening to and working with the Spirit of God, then our words and our lives will preach the gospel loudly and clearly. If we say one thing, but do another, then the work of the congregation and the impact of the gospel is damaged. We are not all called to be prophets, but in the sense that we represent Christ and his Church, we are called to be ambassadors: we stand in for Christ, who is in heaven, as the visible presence of God on earth.
