• Paul’s Ambition Devotional

    Romans 15:20–21

    John Calvin comments on today’s passage, “Paul then was a preacher of Christ, yet unknown to foreign nations, for this end—that after his departure the same doctrine should be daily proclaimed in every place by the mouth of the pastors.” Paul’s calling was to plant churches and move on, but he and the other Apostles never truly left them behind. Instead, the Apostolic doctrine was the foundation for all subsequent ministry. May it continue to be so in our local churches. View Resource
