But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
New King James Version (NKJV)
Each Christian that has been born again must have this same compromise that Apostle Paul mentions here and he or she must behave ignoring the lies and threats of this world and put Jesus in first place to be able to also finish the race in this earth with great joy, giving testimonty to all of the wonderful work that Jesuschrist did in His life through the Gospel of grace.
When we talk about God’s grace, we are not only referring to the gift of salvation that Jesus has given us through His sacrifice on the cross and resurrection from the dead but we also refer that Jesus has placed His risen life within us and by that same grace we have died to sin and the sinful life of Adam, being born again in holiness (Romans 6: 1-14).
*Also the Gospel of grace allows us to live day by day in holiness because we no longer depend on our own strength but from the power of the Holy Spirit that God gave us from the day we were converted to Christ. And for that reason we have now been made children of God (Romans chapter 8).
Today is the day for anyone who wishes to receive this great salvation by grace, ask Jesus for forgiveness for all their sins, repent of them, and invite Him into their hearts to be their King and Lord (Romans 10: 8 -13).
May God’s grace always allow Christ to be in us the hope of glory and our world-changing victory (Colossians 1:27, 1 Corinthians 15:10, 57). Hallelujah.
