Topic: CALLED TO APOSTLESHIP, CALLED TO BE SAINTS
Romans 1:1-7 King James Version (KJV)
1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,
2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
6 Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:
7 To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Beloved, one thing that we have to know as workers in the vineyard of God Almighty and also as saved Christians is that whatever we have is by grace and who ever we are is by calling.
You are an Apostle, a Prophet, an Evangelist, a Pastor or a Teacher of the Gospel of Grace because Jesus Christ has called and chosen you to be so not because you wanted to be.
Beloved, you are not an usher, worshipper, cleaner in the church, driver for the church, sound engineer etc etc for the church just because you want, no, you are who you are in the church because Jesus has called and chosen you to be so in the church.
Beloved, also all the saints are called and chosen to be saints. You are not saved just because you wanted to be saved, no, it is because Jesus called and chose you to receive the gift of salvation.
Beloved everything you do in the church, every position you occupy in the church even as a common floor member in the church, you are not so by chance but by Grace.
This means, we have no power of our own, no authority of our own but everything we have or wield is by the Grace of God and by the Grace we have received from Jesus Christ.
Beloved, to walk in this life Jesus has called you to, you need to understand what Grace is and know that all is by Grace and so anybody who is now coming in should not be condemned but allowed to receive same Gift of Grace from God so that he be transformed to conform and become a part of the Kingdom.
By this Grace we are to spread the Gospel of Grace to all nations without limitations and promote obedience to the faith, faith in Jesus Christ our Lord the author and finisher of our faith as children of God.
We should always ask for Grace and peace upon us and all of those in the Kingdom of God. We have to do this always in Jesus name. Amen.
Beloved, *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else, Jesus came to teach us Grace and exhibit Himself as the manifestation of Grace so we ought to look up to Jesus who is Grace to live this life of Grace and do His work by Grace.
Prayer: Father let your Grace abound in my life and bless me with your peace, now and forever. In the mighty name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
