24 But I count myself as nothing; nor do I regard my life as valuable to myself, so that I may complete my course with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to bear solemn testimony to the gospel of the grace of God.
Bible verses about "apostle paul" | CAB
15 For what I am doing, I do not know. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, this I do.
1 Paul, an apostle (not from men nor through man, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father who raised Him from the dead), 2 and all the brothers with me, to the churches of Galatia: 3 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 who gave Himself for our sins, so that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, 5 to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. 6 I marvel that you are turning so quickly from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, 7 which is not another; except there are certain people who trouble you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach a gospel to you other than what we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, and I say again just now, if anyone preaches a gospel to you other than what you received, let him be accursed. 10 For do I just now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. 11 But I make known to you, brothers, the gospel preached by me is not according to man. 12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but through the revelation of Jesus Christ. 13 For you have heard of my former conduct at one time in Judaism, that beyond measure I used to persecute the church of God, and I was devastating it. 14 And I was advancing in Judaism above many my own age, being far more zealous for the traditions of my forefathers. 15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me through His grace, 16 to reveal His Son in me, so that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood, 17 neither did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me; but I went to Arabia, and returned again to Damascus. 18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Peter, and I stayed with him fifteen days. 19 But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the brother of the Lord. 20 Now, what I write to you, behold, before God, I do not lie. 21 Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. 22 And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which are in Christ. 23 But they heard only, "He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which at one time he was devastating." 24 And they glorified God in me.
1 Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, also taking Titus along. 2 And I went up by revelation, and I set before them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those with influence, lest somehow I might run, or had run, for nothing. 3 But not even Titus who was with me, although he was a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised; 4 and that was because of false brothers secretly brought in (who slipped in to spy out our freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, so that they might reduce us to slavery), 5 to whom not even for an hour did we yield in subjection, that the truth of the gospel might remain with you. 6 But from those who seemed to be something--whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows partiality to no man--so to me, those with influence contributed nothing, 7 but on the contrary, when they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel for the uncircumcised, just as Peter with the gospel for the circumcised, 8 (for He who worked with Peter in the apostleship to the circumcised, worked also with me in that for the Gentiles), 9 and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace which was given to me, they gave me and Barnabas their right hands of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised; 10 only they desired that we should remember the poor, which indeed I made every effort to do this very thing. 11 But when Peter came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he was to be blamed. 12 For before certain men came from James, he would eat together with the Gentiles; but when they came, he began to draw back and began to separate himself, fearing those of the circumcision party. 13 And the rest of the Jews joined him in hypocrisy, so that even Barnabas was carried away with their hypocrisy. 14 But when I saw that they did not act rightly with respect to the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, "If you, being a Jew, live in Gentile fashion and not in Jewish fashion, why do you compel the Gentiles to live as Jews? 15 We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, 16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by the faith of Christ and not by the works of the law; because no flesh shall be justified by the works of the law. 17 But if by seeking to be justified in Christ, we ourselves also were found sinners, then is Christ a minister of sin? Certainly not! 18 For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. 19 For I through the law died to the law, that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me. 21 I do not annul the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing."
1 Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, having been separated to the gospel of God 2 which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, 3 concerning His Son, who came of the seed of David according to the flesh, 4 who was declared Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, 5 through whom we received grace and apostleship for obedience of faith among all the nations for His name, 6 among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ: 7 To all those who are in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 8 First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. 9 For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of His Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers, 10 requesting if somehow now at sometime I shall succeed in the will of God to come to you. 11 For I long to see you, so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift, that you may be established-- 12 that is, that I may be encouraged together among you through the mutual faith both of you and me. 13 Now I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that often I planned to come to you (and I was hindered until now), that I might have some fruit among you also, just as among the other Gentiles. 14 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. 15 So, as much as is in me, I am eager to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes, both to the Jew first and to the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith." 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven upon all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness. 19 Because that which is known of God is manifest among them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things made, both His eternal power and Divinity, so that they are without excuse. 21 Because, having known God, they did not glorify Him as God, or give thanks, but became vain in their reasonings, and their senseless heart was darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God for a likeness of an image of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of the own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for even their females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature, 27 and likewise also the males, having forsaken the natural use of the female, were inflamed by their lust for one another, males with males, committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error. 28 And just as they did not approve to have God in their knowledge, God gave them up to a reprobate mind, to do the things which are not fitting; 29 having been filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, greed, malice; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness; they are whisperers, 30 slanderers, hateful to God, insolent men, proud, braggarts, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, having known the righteous judgment of God, that those practicing such things are worthy of death, not only do them, but also approve of those who practice them.
