Text: Acts 28:1-31.
When Paul finally arrived in Rome, he was allowed to stay under house arrest rather than in a prison. He contacted the local Jews and invited them to come to his residence so that he could speak to them about Jesus (vv.17, 20-22).
On a certain day, the Jews came to him and listened to him for an entire day, as he explained from Moses and the Prophets (which is the entire Scriptures) that Jesus is the Messiah, the One the Jews had been expecting for about 20 centuries. Some believed Paul, and some did not. For two years Paul preached about the Kingdom of God and about Jesus Christ.
If you had the opportunity to explain Jesus from the Bible, as Paul did, would you be able to do it? We must become more familiar with the Bible and its message so that we can lead others to Jesus for salvation. You do not have to be holding the Bible to do what Paul did. But you must know the Bible and its message about Christ.
Meditate on verse 31. How are you going to apply it to your life?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, give me boldness to preach Your Word.
