BY WILLIAM K. G1LKOY. 1). 1). To Paul the gospel -was not n Imited affair designed for tlie sai- 'utton of a chosen few, n sort of, .plrllua! aristocracy, it was his conviction that any man could be saved by the power of the gospel "If any man," he wrote, "be in Christ, he is a new creature: old hlngs are passed away; behold all hlngs are become new" (II Corinthians 5:17). The emphasis there Is on the word "any." He wrote also of his purpose'and aim "to make all men see whiit is :hc fellowship of the mystery, which irom the beginning of the world hnth been hid In God, who created all things by Jesus Christ" (Ephesians 3:9). If these words seem to conflict with Paul's reference to those who' were foi-oiclaincd to be saved, it were foreordained to be saved, it tion was that all who believed should be saved. Paul was insistent that wherever man fulfilled the condition O f faith God -fulfilled the promise of salvation. If Paul had any vestige of carlh- !y liride, it was In his Roman citizenship. Only a minority enjoyed that privilege, with its rights, in that slave-ridden world. When arrested and about to be flogged, lie protested against being beaten uncondemned. "being a Boman" And when the Roman officer, amazed, said, "With a great sum obtained I this freedom," one can Imagine how Paul lifted his head with a pride pardonable under the circumstances as he replied, "But I was free born." It was something, in that world, l o be a frec- (bom citizen of Rome. ( There was something imperial In : Paul. If he had ,been-'a soldier he .would have aspired to world con- I quest; nothing less would have sat- .isficd his spirit and his ambition, t But. being a Christian, h c was an imperialist for Christ. Rome loomed on his horizon as ( the very pinnacle of world powei I and glory, yet it was against this | imperial Rome that- hc declared lie was not ashame<i to preach the jcspcl of Christ, or. sr.ld lie, "It Is Hie power of God unto salvation to every one that belleveth; lo the Jew first, and also lo I he Greek." As Home had conquered the whole known world, so 1'uul aspired to conquer the whole world for Christ. His vision and his purpose were In exact harmony with (ho commission that Jesus had given His disciples In His lust cnrthly moments, to no and make disciples of nil nations, preaching the gospel even to Ihe ends of tlio, earth. The ber.t nnd greatest Christians have shared ihc missionary purpose of Paul. They hare not wc- ciiscrt feeble efforts on the ground of the "need at home," for they have realized, 115 Paul did, lliat the spread of the gospel is the measure of its power.
