Listen to Ephesians 2 below and let God's Word soak into you.
Ephesians 3:1-9 NLT - When I think of all this, I, Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus for the benefit of you Gentiles . . . assuming, by the way, that you know God gave me the special responsibility of extending his grace to you Gentiles. As I briefly wrote earlier, God himself revealed his mysterious plan to me. As you read what I have written, you will understand my insight into this plan regarding Christ. God did not reveal it to previous generations, but now by his Spirit he has revealed it to his holy apostles and prophets.
And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus. By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News.
Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ. I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.
Paul was given a special assignment to preach the Good News to the Gentiles (the non-Jewish peoples). God definitely cares about the Jewish people. But there are so many more nations to reach. Jesus desires ALL people to hear the news of his saving work on the cross. He wants ALL to believe and repent. 2 Peter 3:9
The special responsibility that Paul was given is our mission today. We are called by Jesus to "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone." Mark 16:15 His body is not yet complete. There are so many who have not even heard the news that salvation is found in Jesus alone.
Do you hear God's call to spread the news that we can be close with God? Your special mission is to go to those who haven't heard… who don't know… who still are not a part of God's family. What will you do today to make sure that another person hears about Jesus? Ask him for wisdom right now in how to pursue the lost in the course of your day.
