Acts 26:16-18 “‘But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness to the things in which you have seen Me and to those in which I will appear to you. Delivering you from your people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you. To open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of satan to God that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in Me'” (ESV)
This passage is about Paul telling the officials his account of what happened to him that made him believe in Jesus. He was not fearful, though he stood before them in chains. Paul was very well known for persecuting followers of Jesus. Now he stands before them as a witness for Jesus. If you ever feel that you couldn’t be used by God because of things you may have done in the past… remember Paul and how he spoke so sternly against God and had people put to death for following Jesus. If God can use Paul… He can use you and me. Happy Monday to you all, have a blessed filled week. See you Wednesday!
