Today we take a look at the life of Paul. Starting with his conversion in Acts chapter 9. I wanna look at his relationship with his Savior. Jesus had specific plans for him. Plans it would ultimately take him to many parts of the world to testify concerning The Lord that would ultimately, Nate and him going to Rome. I want us to take note how Paul reacts to being faced with the resurrected Christ!
Who are you Lord?. What do you want me to do?
Sauls conversion acts chapter 9:3-7/.
Sauls conversion was three hours out of the resurrection of our Lord. 36 AD
Acts chapter 9 verse 15-16
C. Children of Israel
D. Suffer for my namesake
The lesson for us. We can go to people before us and testified bear witness to what the
Lord has done and will do as well
Paul went to the Gentiles. Pivotal moment
But he went to the Jew first then to the Greek
Acts ch 13: 44-47
Here we read of the plot to kill Paul
Be of good cheer, Paul, for as you have testified for me in Jerusalem, you must also bear
witness at Rome.
The lesson for us. Though it seems like everything‘s against us. When we are for Christ.
He is standing right by us. He has a plan for you, and he will fulfil it. The Lord is standing
right by us. I will never leave you nor forsake you said Jesus.
Paul before Felix. 59 AD ish
Acts chapter 24:11-21
Here we see Paul accused of sedition by the leading Jewish authorities and religious
What is Paul‘s main defence? “The resurrection of the dead“
What kind of person is Felix?
Yeah unrepentant or unwilling to believe./ on the contrary what kind of people are we. Or
ask yourself what kind of person am I?
Fast forward, Festus two years later.
Paul appeals to Caesar 25:11-22
Paul testifies to King Agrippa 26:1-21
What is a testimony. Former life. Conversion. Present life
God has a plan for Paul to go to Rome and testify before Cesar
It was an amazing thing that Paul was under house arrest in Rome. Has he gone to Rome
as I can with the preacher his message more than likely would’ve been just one among
many other preachers. And got lost but he was under house arrest in Caesar’s
household. Speaking to the praetorian guard relatives of Cesar great and intellectual
God’s ultimate plan for him was achieved
If you are a believer but your faith in Christ learn how to model this example. Everywhere
you go you can testify of your former life. Your conversion and your life now. Trust in
him he has a plan
And if you’re on the fence. Why?.
Ask yourself. Who is this Jesus? Who are you Lord? What do you want me to do?
Those are the two greatest questions we can ever ask. They are so important eternity
depends on it!
