5 “You are God’s ambassadors; so, wherever you find yourself –  as an administrator, civil servant, teacher, , trader, and even as a parent, be a true representative of Christ.

6 “All of us are called ministers of God, it is not only those of us that wear collars; 1 Peter, 2:9  tells us that we are a royal priesthood, a peculiar people and a chosen generation.
