“This One’s for You”
2 Corinthians 4: 15: “For all things are for your sakes, that the grace that is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God.” Summing up all this week’s Office Memos, St. Paul shows us why Jesus trusted him with the Gospel to the entire Gentile world. The guy knew whom he was serving. He went through all kinds of hardships, when he could have very easily gone back to his life of Pharisaical selfishness, for the sake of all the believers he had met and those whom he would never see. Like Ruth clinging to Naomi, St. Paul clung to his ministry and his flocks, for the sole purpose of bringing glory to God. Nowhere in the equation was there room for self. That’s the Gospel in a nutshell!
