1 Who will move to the other line? Romans 15 EAST Chapel February APOSTOLIC FOCUS

2 Romans 15:16-24 TNIV 16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles. He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. 17 Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. 18 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done

3 Romans 15:16-24 TNIV 19 by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. 20 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone elses foundation. 21 Rather, as it is written: Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.

4 Romans 15:16-24 TNIV 22 This is why I have often been hindered from coming to you. Pauls Plan to Visit Rome 23 But now that there is no more place for me to work in these regions, and since I have been longing for many years to visit you, 24 I plan to do so when I go to Spain. I hope to see you while passing through and to have you assist me on my journey there, after I have enjoyed your company for a while

5 1. Apostolic Call Romans 15:16 He gave me the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:19 from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. Jerusalem, Antioch, Cyprus, Ephesus, Philippi, Corinth, Illyricum Each place where the church was planted, the church could now evangelize their people and their near neighbors. Inspiration and Information Romans 15:16 Romans 15:19

6 2. Apostolic Ambition Romans 15:20 Why where Christ is not known and not build on another mans foundation? Evangelism spreads the gospel within a culture, but missions spreads the gospel to new people groups Many are able to evangelize, but few are able to be missionaries Location Families Gifts Boldness Strategy The Great Commission fulfillment is more rapid (even possible) because of missions Romans 15:20

7 3. Apostolic Compassion Romans 15:21 Rather, as it is written: Those who were not told about him will see, and those who have not heard will understand. Discipleship and Missions illustrated Romans 15:21
