Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
Now to Him that is of power to stablish you according to my Gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the Commandment of the everlasting GOD, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: (Rom 16:17-18, 25-26)
The final salutation of Paul reminds us that the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the work of the Holy Spirit and the Word of GOD not only brings us to faith, but establishes us in the faith. The mystery of Christ in us, and the body of Christ, the Church of GOD was not revealed before the Cross, but is now manifest in us and through us, for we are His Church, and every one members one of another in it.
Those of us who have been redeemed by Christ because of our repentance toward GOD and our faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary, we as His ambassadors, are committed, compelled, commanded and commissioned to His will and work in this lost and dying world. As strangers and aliens here, we are not to love the world, even while we love and share Christ with the people of this world until He takes us Home to be with Him.
Until that day, His Church is to be about our Father's business. We are to be committed to the work of Jesus Christ to reconcile others to GOD. As ministers of reconciliation we are to minister to the hurting and in need that they may see Christ in us the Hope of Glory. We are compelled to bear one another's burdens and so fulfill the Law of Christ. We are commanded to disciple one another in His Word that we may grow and to love one another so that all may know we are His disciples. We are commissioned to go and make disciples, and as we go, share the Good News of Jesus Christ with all who will hear, and teaching them all things Jesus commanded, that they may hear and believe the Gospel, and in believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
