We are nearing the end of our journey through the book of Acts and it sure seems that the Apostle Paul is nearing the end of his journey in this world. He was nearly torn to shreds by a riotous mob in Jerusalem, rescued only to be put in chains by Roman authorities, tied to the rack for a torturous whipping, then saved by his Roman citizenship only to be turned over to Judaism’s ruling council, who were no friends of Paul. Paul was not guilty of any crime yet the Jews sought to kill him and the Romans dared not to release him.
What caused Paul to carry on rather than quite or escape? He was a man on a mission. Paul, in fact, is not the only Christian sent by Jesus on this mission. God puts all Christians on a mission and stands by them in it. Before us this week is an excellent example of how you and I can carry out our mission for Jesus and how He will stand by us as we do.
