I, Paul, am writing this letter. I serve Christ Jesus. I have been appointed to be an apostle. God set me apart to tell others his good news.
He promised the good news long ago. He announced it through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures.
The good news is about God's Son. As a human being, the Son of God belonged to King David's family line.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, he was appointed to be the mighty Son of God because he rose from the dead. He is Jesus Christ our Lord.
I received God's grace because of what Jesus did so that I could bring glory to him. He made me an apostle to all those who aren't Jews. I must invite them to have faith in God and obey him.
You also are among those who are appointed to belong to Jesus Christ.
