Proclamation Of Christ's Saving Gospel: Romans 1:1-7, Patstor W.F. Kumuyi

Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we  received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people: In chapter 1:4 who was appointed the  Son-of-God-in-power according to the Holy Spirit by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ  our Lord. On chapter 1:5 through him we received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles on behalf of his name.

Who is called to
- To Save and to sanctified.
- To Teach and to train.
- To prepare and quicken us.

Paul The Publisher Of The Gospel Of God: Romans 1:1; Acts 9:3-5

The very first word in there was PAUL - It is used as example for us to learn, about Paul a servant of Jesus Christ, Paul who is purchased. It is the will of the Messiah who had called him to be an apostle. Separated from the world, totally committed unto the work of God.

• A CONVICTED MAN - Romans 9:3-5
• A CONVERTED MAN - Romans 9:17.
• A CALLED MAN and COMMISSIONED MAN- Galatians 1:15.
• A CONSECRATED MAN- Philippians 3:7
• A CONQUERED CAPTIVE - Romans 10:16
• A CRUCIFIED MAN - Galatians 2:20
• A COURAGEOUS MINISTER - Acts 16:29,30,35.
• A CONSTANT, CONCENTRATED MAN - Philippians 3:13,14.

Paul, the servant of Jesus Christ, a committed, courageous servant revealed:
 (1) The purpose and power of the gospel
(2) The details of the gospels, that you must slays mention to people when preaching the gospel -1 Corinthians 14:1
(3) Is the gospel of salvation. How Christ died for our sins according to the scripture, and he was buried and rose again in verse 4 " And that he was buried, and that he arose again the third day according to the scriptures".
(4)Gospel concerning his Son. The Son who was:-
~ Sacrifice
~ Substitute
~ Saviour
~ Sin bearer
~ Sanctifier

He came to save us, He came to turn us away from our iniquity through GRACE & SALVATION, PEACE OF MIND, PURITY OF HEART, GRACE AT MINISTRY. Grace that brings us to the service of the Lord. Titus 2:11.
Grace that comes to our life is the grace that is coming from the Lord Jesus Christ "For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared unto all men".

He Planned Of Proclaimed The Gospel Of The Grace Of God. Romans 1:6-13; 1Thessalonians 4:7; Romans 16:19.

Paul having a plan to fulfill and the three things make mention in the verse PRAY, PLAN and PURPOSE.

√He prayed with them without ceasing.
√ He planned to come and work for God.
√ He purpose in his heart. Having firm purpose, a purpose in life to help to drive the hindrance away.
He was:
* CALLED TO BE SAVED - 1Peter 1:15,16. It tells us about his calling. * CONVERTED TO THE FAITH. The conversion to the faith must not just to be limited to the society. In the book of [Romans 8:2]. Their conversion resorted a new conformity.

the passion for preaching the gospel of godliness. Romans 1:14-17; 1Corinthians 9:16; Acts 21:13; Romans 15:19; Galatians 3:11.
When you are saved, sanctified, purified in heart. He said, there is MUCH MORE in Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel”
- He had a debt he owed - Romans 1:4
- The decision he offer - Romans 1:15
- The duty he owned - Romans 1:16
- The doctrine he obeyed - Romans 1:14.
Here is the righteous of God he revealed.

THE DEPT THAT MUST BE PAID - You having the gospel that must be preached "I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians: both to the wise, and to the unwise".
THE DECISION THAT MUST BE PURSUIT. Many don't work, follow-up on that decision they make. Romans 1:15. He was Willing to pursuit it to the point of death.

THE DEDICATION WHICH MUST BE PRESERVED. The dedication every Christian, every member of body of Christ must preserved "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation."

THE DOCTRINE WHICH MUST BE PUBLISHED. In Romans 1:17- That is what brought the regeneration THAT JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH! Proclaiming, preaching the gospel to brings the JUST to Christ. In Hebrews 10:38 " Now the just San live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him".

The Lord is calling us like he called Paul the Apostle. It is now for us to rise and proclaim the gospel.
As God helped him (Paul), he will help us . Let us come to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy. He had grace in abundance, and all he ordained we are going to be in Jesus name. Amen.
