WEEK 7 - Paul's Arrest 


As we read last week, Paul knew that when he went to Jerusalem he would be arrested. The Holy Spirit informed him that there would be trials and imprisonment waiting for him, but he went anyway. He went because he knew that the Lord would use his imprisonment to allow the Gospel to be preached to people who never would have heard it otherwise. To the world, Paul’s imprisonment was a disgrace but Paul understood that with God on his side, his imprisonment was going to be used in amazing ways.

That’s the funny thing about the Gospel. God uses the things, people and situations that the world finds unimportant or embarrassing and uses them to do His work. He used common, uneducated people as His first disciples. His first converts were from the poor and disenfranchised. His greatest missionary did his best work in chains. And Messiah is no different. We aren’t in the most fashionable part of the country. We aren’t even in the fanciest part of the Twin Cities, but the Lord has used Messiah to continue the work that He started through the disciples and Paul. By worldly standards we might not be popular or prestigious but the Lord does His best work through those who trust in Him and not on their own capabilities.
