Acts 25

Read Acts 25 – The Lord works in mysterious ways – Paul is able to share the Gospel because of the false accusations against him.  He has an audience in Festus, the new governor, King Aggripa and his sister, Bernice.  Notice all that is recorded in verse :23, “So the next day Agrippa and Bernice arrived at the auditorium with great pomp, accompanied by military officers and prominent men of the city. Festus ordered that Paul be brought in.”  This was a big show… yet what the accusers meant for evil, God used for good.  Paul has appealed to Caesar, as was his right as a Roman citizen, :11.  Festus agreed, but couldn’t even articulate what the charge against him was.  Our chapter ends with Festus declaring: “For it makes no sense to send a prisoner to the emperor without specifying the charges against him!” :27.  Beloved, when life seems unfair, look for the bigger picture.  Look for ways to show God’s goodness and mercy to those around you.  May you always have eyes for Jesus.😍
