Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised Him from the dead;)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

Paul has a unique ministry to the gentiles. He was the only apostle that was called by the risen ascended and glorified Lord Jesus and by God the Father. Paul was given the profound mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generation – he was the man chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

He was not appointed during Christ’s earthly ministry nor was he appointed to be an apostle by the authority of other men, as was the replacement for Judas – when and the lot fell upon Matthias. Paul was singular in his apostleship, unique in his ministry and singular in his message

Paul did not continue teaching the gospel of the coming kingdom on earth, which Christ and the apostles proclaimed during His pre-cross ministry – Paul resolved to proclaim Jesus Christ and Him crucified – Who died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day. Paul uniquely proclaimed the glorious gospel of grace – bringing salvation to all men.. both Jew and Gentile alike. Let us take to heart the truths that Paul proclaims to whosoever will, during this dispensation of grace..

My Prayer

Loving Father thank You that in You grace You sent Jesus to be the propitiation for my sins – and that by believing on Him I have been brought into Your heavenly family and clothed in His righteousness, praise His holy name
