Happy Friday! “And the leaders of the church had nothing to add to what I was preaching. (By the way, their reputation as great leaders made no difference to me, for God has no favorites.) Instead, they saw that God had given me the responsibility of preaching the gospel to the Gentiles, just as he had given Peter the responsibility of preaching to the Jews. For the same God who worked through Peter as the apostle to the Jews also worked through me as the apostle to the Gentiles.” Galatians 2:6-8NLT
As we read earlier this week, Paul experienced opposition, however he stayed steadfast to the mission God gave him. The same God who used the apostles is the same God who has a plan and purpose for you.
