The Life and Ministry of the Apostle Paul

Throughout the 2,000 years since Paul's existence and his devoted service to Jesus Christ, countless books have been written about him. These writings have celebrated Paul's character and the remarkable contributions he made to the early church. However, if Paul were able to communicate with us today, he would likely refer to the Old Testament passage found in Psalm 115:1 and apply it to himself. He would humbly declare, "Not to me, O Lord, not to me, but to Your name be the glory." Paul would never seek personal recognition for his achievements, instead attributing all credit and honor to God.

As we reflect on this truth and agree with Paul's perspective, at the same time we should thoroughly examine his life to gain insights on ways we can more faithfully and effectively serve our beloved Lord and Savior.

Romans 8:28

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to His purpose.
