THE APOSTLE PAUL WAS SET APART BY GOD SPECIFICALLY FOR THE GOSPEL (Rom 1:1). IN FACT, IT WAS TO HIM THAT CHRIST REVEALED THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” (Gal 1:11-12, Acts 20:24). AS TO HIS APOSTLESHIP, HE WAS ASSIGNED TO BE AN APOSTLE TO THE GENTILES (Rom 11:13).
HE WAS APPOINTED A HERALD, AN APOSTLE AND A TEACHER OF TRUE FAITH TO THE GENTILES. (1Ti 2:7) “And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.”
THROUGH THE INSPIRATION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT HE WROTE THREE-FOURTHS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT AND THE BOOK OF ROMAN IS CONSIDERED THE MAGNA CARTA OF OUR FAITH.
AS TO HIS MISSION, BEFORE HE DIED, HE SAID:
(2Ti 4:6) For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time has come for my departure.
(2Ti 4:7) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
(2Ti 4:8) Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.
IF YOU’RE A GENTILE PASTOR OR A GENTILE BELIEVER FOR THAT MATTER, IT IS INCUMBENT UPON YOU TO FIRST AND FOREMOST BE WELL-VERSED IN THE DOCTRINE OF GOD’S GRACE THAT HE PREACHED TO THE WHOLE GENTILE WORLD DURING HIS TIME. FOR THAT IS THE SAME DOCTRINE HE IS GOING TO PREACH IF HE IS ALIVE TODAY!
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
