There was no doubt in Paul’s mind and heart that preaching the gospel, the unsearchable riches of Christ, would accomplish God’s purpose for the nations (ethnos or people groups). With great confidence in his calling and the power of God working through him, Paul says, “we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations” (Romans 1:5).
Like book ends to the greatest theme on earth, the gospel, Paul repeats this purpose in Romans 16:26. He was absolutely assured that there would be someone from “every tribe and language and people and nation” who would obey the gospel by faith (see Revelation 5:9). It is not for us to figure out who those individuals are. Our business is to “GO” with the message and God will lead us to the hearts where He has already been at work.
WILL YOU GO? His grace will provide what you need. He just wants your willing heart!
