Romans 1:5 (NLT)
“Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority as apostles to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him…”
God has revealed His final purpose for Mankind in Christ, and the best that a man can ever be is found in Christ. The totality of God’s work of grace is only in Christ, and God’s purpose for revealing Christ is for everyone everywhere. Sadly however, large sections of the world still have not heard and do not know about Christ, because the Church has not told them. Billions of people have never heard or known God’s rich blessings for them in Christ. What sorrow!
We are responsible “to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey Him.” Paul calls it a “privilege”. It is a privilege to let people know the grand blessings awaiting them, in Christ. It is a great privilege for you to be God’s instrument in bringing supernatural transformation to Gentile communities, freeing them from the ancestral veil of Satan, inherited from their ancestors. And God sends us with His authority, so it is not of us but of God Himself working through Christ in us.
“Lord, this is such a great honor but also such a great responsibility. As a member of the Body, may I fully utilize the authority given to me to serve my generation of Gentiles who have never heard of You. Amen.”
