From the Moderator
“12. In him and through faith in him we may approach God with freedom and confidence. 13. I ask you, therefore, not to be discouraged because of my sufferings for you, which are your glory.” Ephesians 3:12-13
God sent Paul to preach the truth and the mystery of God that he had obtained both personally and through his fellowship even though he was a persecutor of the followers of Christ. Paul carried it out with all his heart. The Word of God that we often read and understand is the same mystery God revealed to His holy apostles and Prophets. The word holy refers to those God honours to share the good news. Paul felt that he was the least of all saints, but he showed his humbleness as a prophet. He taught to honours only Christ.
Today in relation to the ministry of the apostles, of course it is done in and through the church. Coming out of the UCA’s anniversary, we celebrate the body of Christ with the apostles who serve as church organisers. Each has been given a special gift and responsibility to serve and guide the people to proclaim the word of God. The church must continue its service and must be able to introduce and apply the teachings that Jesus brought. They must continue to serve in active roles and be willing to overcome developments in a world that is ever changing.
