Text: Acts 24:1-27.
The meditation for today is similar to yesterday’s – persevering in difficult circumstances. Paul was imprisoned and examined in court (vv. 24-27). But he does not compromise his beliefs, as if that would set him free. Regardless of what happens to him, he speaks the truth. Notice v. 25, what Paul said to Felix made the Governor very uncomfortable. Paul spoke the truth, because the truth is always necessary. Luke also points out that the Governor was hoping that Paul would pay a bribe in exchange for his freedom, which Paul also would not do.
Does that speak to your life in Uganda?! So, Paul continued in prison for two more years, even though he had done nothing wrong. Jesus
faced the same sorts of things and remained true to His Father. By God’s grace, may it be that we all become persons of integrity.
Meditate on verse 25. How are you going to apply it to your life?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, fill me with boldness to preach the gospel of repentance and forgiveness. Amen.
