Represent = RE-PRESENT?

What do we represent?

I've been thinking alot lately about the word "represent". What in the world do we really represent?

I broke the word down into two parts -
"re" - to do again.
"present" - to show or demonstrate.

So what do we really "re-present" to the world?

Do we present Christ again? Do we look like Him to the world?

Do we "re-present" anything? or possibly even "mis-re-present" something or someone?

Perhaps what we "re-present" is the core of what we really love and believe, about what is important, about the world, our God, ourselves and others.
