Sabbath: Paul: Apostle to the Gentiles — 3 Comments

  1. ln sabath afternoon, l would likely say that God prepared paul for a tedious task(preaching the gospel) by allowing him to persecute christians who were in the journey before him, so that during his own time he will not be discouraged while passing through challenges of following jesus.

  2. It is very interesting to me, that like Paul, we sometimes wrestle with God's desire for our lives where we may actually want to serve Him but primarily base on our interpretation of what we think must be done.

    Isa 55:8-New Living Translation
    "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the LORD. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.

    It is also interesting that Paul's ministry has been reemphasized over and over for inreach or outreach with the emphasize on following his commission to "teach", "baptize" and the "teach" again to those who may have less light than the rest of us. Do we need to reevaluate our mindset on effective ministry and how much we teach ourselves in the church? I do believe that not all churches or members are at the same spiritual level and would need help in moving forward, but how long do we do this.

    I think as we explored this quarter, we may see the "fruits of the spirit" by Paul's work who was filled with the Holy Ghost, where his teaching resulted in something amazing. Would love to see some of those comments are we progress through this lesson.
