Write a reflection on Romans 1:1-7 and apply it to modern church missions. Briefly state whether you believe Paul’s motivation is what motivates your church for mission or whether that motivation needs to be brought in line with Paul’s. Consider the following as you develop the thread:
What is the content of the gospel as identified in that passage?
In what way was Jesus appointed Son of God with power?
What is the meaning of the “obedience of faith?”
What is the purpose of Paul’s call to apostleship?
What is Paul’s motivation for mission?
