This thing Jesus is doing for Papa, this work I’m participating in–it is impressive! (18) It’s the only thing I want to talk about–what Jesus has done through me to win the allegiance of the Illegals:
successfully seeding the News about Jesus all the way from Judea to Greece and everywhere in between.
(20) But I’m nowhere near done! I want to take the News to places where nobody’s heard of it yet, where no beginning has yet been made!
(21) “The ones who haven’t been told–they will see him!
The ones who never heard of him–they will understand!”
(22) The only reason I haven’t come out to see you guys yet is that you already have heard. (23) But now I’ve run out of people who haven’t heard; this whole region is saturated with the News! So now I finally have a chance to come see you guys in person (24) when I take my trip to the fresh ears in Spain. I want to see you and have some good face-time with you. (25) Right now I’m on my way to Jerusalem to deliver a gift to our Jesus-friends there. (26) Our friends all over Greece were eager to share their financial resources with the poor in Jerusalem. (27) They were thrilled they got to do this! The Natives’ inheritance has been shared with Illegals, so it is fitting for Illegals to share their wealth with Natives.
(28) Anyway, once I’ve delivered this gift, I will start my journey toward Spain. First stop: YOUR house! (29) I can’t wait! When I come, we will share together in the rich mutual self-giving of Papa, Jesus & Sarayu.
