“Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake”
The first qualifier for Paul to share the gospel was grace – the unmerited favor of God – saving him. Then Paul is “sent” and “set apart” for this work, hence “apostleship”. His goal is to bring about obedience. Why? For the sake of Jesus name. To glorify God!
Wow: Does my obedience cause others to praise Jesus? In what way have I been set apart and sent where?
Lord Jesus, I want to make your name great!
