Paul, Christ Jesus’ slave, a chosen apostle, appointed to God’s good news (Romans 1:1, BSV).
Paul proclaimed the Gospel of God, i.e., “God’s Good News.” It was a Good News that came from God. It was a Good News with the sovereign God of the universe in it.
It was not the Bad News of Religion – one of condemnation and shame, one that professes a “loving” god whose hands are tied and will have to torment most of his creatures endlessly.
Instead it was truly “Good News,” and that from a Good God of Love, concerning the Son of His Love, our Lord Jesus Christ.
God’s Son IS the Good News of God. His Good News is entirely Christ centered; man has absolutely no part to play in it. It allows for no rebellion, and it leaves no one behind.
Paul was “appointed to God’s Good News.”
