Paul the apostle to whom?

I often read and hear it said that Paul was the Apostle to the Gentiles. While its true that he was an Apostle to the Gentiles, his ministry was not only to the Gentiles.

Rom 1:14  It doesn’t matter if people are civilized and educated, or if they are uncivilized and uneducated. I must tell the good news to everyone. That’s why I am eager to visit all of you in Rome. CEV

Within the framework of Pauls ministry and mission: his message was one of reconciliation for all, with all to be in relationship with God through the one.

In seven days time, we celebrate  the birth of the one. The one who brought us peace. The one who brought us life. And the one whose message is a message of hope. Christians know him as Jesus. Our Muslim friends know him as Isa.

As Christmas looms near, take time and think about the meaning of Christmas and the inherent message of Christ being born.  No matter our nationality, gender, and societal class we can be assure indeed that God is close to us.
