Jesus Blesses His People


“Through Him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for His name’s sake”. (Rom. 1:5)

*******

The Lord Jesus Christ richly blessed all who would believe and obey Him.

*******

They Receive Grace

Grace is the unmerited love and favor of the Lord Jesus Christ for sinners.

Through grace we are saved, kept, and cared for.

It is by grace that we understand the promise of an eternity with Jesus in Heaven.

*******

They Receive Gifts

They receive apostleship.

They receive gifts to work for the Lord.

They are drafted for His mission (Acts 1:8).

They are sent out as witnesses for the glory of the Lord.

*******

Witnessing is not only for the paid staff members of the church.

Every child of God is to be a worker in the Lord's fields of harvest (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15).

*******

Let us be powerful and effective witnesses for the Lord Jesus Christ!
