“Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among the nations for His name..” Romans 1:5
One can argue that “apostleship” is a special calling to proclaim the gospel: but when you receive Christ, you also receive the commission to proclaim Him by your life and gifting – so you also receive apostleship. You make a difference in the Great War. Obedience to the faith among the nations is increased because of you: your confession, your prayer, your giving and encouraging and attendance and ministry..
And all of it in the context of the Body, the church. Welcome, celebrate and be encouraged in your apostleship today. If you’re not yet there – do talk with us!
Under the Mercy,
And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him. And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel …
The Holy Spirit revealed to Simeon that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. On seeing the baby Jesus in the temple he exclaimed “your servant may now depart in peace”.
Has the Holy Spirit revealed to you that the baby is Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour? Of all the gifts we receive in our lives, the greatest is the free gift of God – eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
….“Hallelujah! For the Lord our God the Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure”— for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.
When you think about how humbly the Creator of the universe, the Lord God Almighty came into the world and compare it to how we, the created, will be treated at His Second coming, does that not make you want to rejoice? What an honour, what a privilege to be chosen as His Bride. Hallelujah!
