25/1/12 Acts 26:19-32
S: Acts 26:28-29 Agrippa interrupted him. “Do you think you can persuade me to become a Christian so quickly?”
Paul replied, “Whether quickly or not, I pray to God that both you and everyone here in this audience might become the same as I am, except for these chains.”
O: Agrippa was a king, while Paul was a prisoner. Yet, Paul took the opportunity of his legal defence to share the Gospel. Indeed, Paul was ultimately in a better position than King Agrippa & Queen Bernice, and Governor Festus, because he had eternal life.
A: Paul recognised that even though he was in chains, he was in a much better position ultimately because he was in Christ. So he boldly took the opportunity to share the Gospel with King Agrippa and the other VIPs.
P: Father, help us to keep things in Your perspective, like Paul did. In Jesus' name, amen.
