Key Verse

“Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation” (Romans 15:20).

TEXT — Romans 15:14-22


When a course is noteworthy, people invest time, materials and money in it to profit maximally or succeed. Investing all in the course of propagating the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is the most eternally rewarding venture anyone can ever undertake.

Apostle Paul left a very imposing but highly replicable example for all believers in relentless preaching backed by the Spirit of God with signs and wonders as promised by Jesus Christ. Covering a large expanse of territory “from Jerusalem and round about unto Illyricum (a country now called Albania, covering a distance of about 1,000 miles), he determined to preach the gospel “not where Christ was named, lest [he] should build upon another man’s foundation”.

Our passage reveals the doggedness and exploits of the Apostle in the field of evangelism, breaking new grounds, as a conquering commander in battle. He was convinced that we have the same capacity being “full of goodness and filled with all knowledge”. Though he faced a lot of hardship and opposition, he remained determined to spread the gospel.

Paul’s life is indeed a worthy challenge for Christians today. Little wonder he could boldly say, “be ye followers of me” (1 Corinthians 4:16; 11:1; Philippians 3:17). Fear, fatigue, friends, finance, family, adversaries and distance did not prevent him from preaching the gospel.

What have you done so far to propagate the gospel? As a believer, you should rededicate your life to this worthy and noble venture if you desire to get to heaven like other saints and receive the crown of righteousness like them.
