Used for the Lord’s Purpose

In Your Bible: Acts 28: 30,31

This is the last blog on the study of Acts. Paul spent his remaining two years in Rome ministering to any who came to see him. In his overall ministry, he traveled extensively and wrote letters to churches he planted. Paul was chosen by God to travel, tell and teach about the risen Lord.

From Persecutor to Proclaimer

Saul persecuted Christians and put fear in the hearts of the followers of Jesus. He experienced God’s grace through a face to face encounter with Jesus himself! The Holy Spirit empowered Saul (now Paul) to tell Jews and Gentiles about Jesus. His path was difficult, but he accomplished much.

Paul Taught in Rome

Paul spent his final years in Rome in his own rented quarters. He welcomed all who came to him and taught them about the Kingdom of God with unhindered teaching. Paul was chosen by God to travel, tell and teach about the risen Lord.

Prayer: Father, what a joy it is to know you care for me. I need your help to keep my hands open to share with others the love you shower on me.

Questions: You have seen the Holy Spirit work through the disciples. In what manner does the Holy Spirit work in your life? How was the fall of the Holy Spirit crucial to the birth of the Church?
