This takes us to discuss their mission as: AMBASSADORS
(2 Cor 5:18) Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
The work of reconciliation is a perpetual function, since man continues to separate himself from God by committing sin, as we have discussed this issue before here on st-takla.org in other sections. So Christ assigned the function of reconciliation to the clergy, His vicars, who are commissioned to go to people and exhort them saying : “Be Reconciled With God”
Such commission is coupled with delivering the Word of God to the people, as God’s ambassadors:
(Eph 6:20) for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
