“Yet I consider life of no importance to me, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to bear witness to the gospel of God’s grace.”
At this point Paul is in such communion with the risen Christ that he knows in the deepest way that true joy and peace can only come through carrying out his calling in each moment. He realized that the world’s ways of supposedly attaining happiness would all eventually lead to emptiness. We are all called to “bear witness to the gospel of God’s grace”…in other words…to bear witness to the Good News of God’s freely given love and forgiveness. How do we do this with the talents, abilities, and deep passions we’ve received from our loving Creator? As soon as you decide to allow Christ to lead you in this quest…you are truly in a graced moment. The kingdom of God is at hand! How are you called to bear witness to the gospel of God’s grace with your life?
