Romans 1:5 stood out to me: "Through him and for his name's sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith." (NIV) We receive grace - something I far from deserve. I often like to stop there and marvel over that gift and ignore all which comes next. But that's not all: within the same breath Paul states we have also received an apostleship or an authority to tell Gentiles everywhere. I feel I can accept the previous calling when I think of how it is to be carried out - by "obedience that comes from faith." By faith I can wake up each morning and know I am not doing it alone but I am guided by Christ and through the Holy Spirit. That makes this calling of apostleship much less daunting. Also, I totally agree with the Christian life being based on personal relationship. F'sho.
