Aug 30: Magnifying

Romans 11:13 – “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:” Here the Apostle Paul tells the church at Rome that he magnifies his office. This DOES NOT mean to usurp, promote or rise through the ranks. Paul uses the word “magnify” to say that he glorifies in the office that God gave him. He tells one and all of his joy to serve the Lord and he worships God for the service that God allows him to do.

The point Paul makes is that it is not enough to simply enjoy what you do for the Lord, our appreciation and excitement should bubble up inside us and we ought to proclaim it to the world. We ought to magnify (Glory in, Bear Witness to Others, and Worship God) the opportunities that God allows his children. When was the last time you magnified: 1.) Your CALL to salvation and service; 2.) The CAPABILITY to labor for the Lord; and, 3.) The Lord’s CHOICE to use you for His glory?

Paul just couldn’t get over that God gave him something to do in the ministry. Do we treat our offices as chores, or do we praise God for the things He allows us to do for Him?

Your fellowservant in Christ, Bro. Jordan Foster
