QT 09/06/2024 Sunday. Acts 28. And so we came to Rome!

Paul's journey to Rome encountered many storms, but they "were brought safely through" (Acts 28:1).

God protected His apostle, even from the viper (Acts 28:3-6). Not only did the Roman centurion showed Paul kindness (Acts 27), the chief official of Malta showed Paul much hospitality (Acts 28:7).

Therefore, Rome should not fear this religion preached by Paul, who even attended to the medical needs of others in Malta (Acts 28:8-10). Luke's point all along in Luke-Acts was that Rome should embrace this religion.

The POWER of the gospel and the God behind it was proven by these recorded statements :-

"And so we came to Rome" (Acts 28:14). What a sentence! Paul would now preach in the BACKYARD of the political power that nailed Jesus to the cross (see Gospel of Luke).

"Without hindrance" (28:31). What a sentence that ENDED Luke-Acts! Jesus Christ, who was crucified by Roman soldiers, now had an apostle preaching for Him in Rome "with all boldness".

Acts did not end with the trial of Paul and its verdict. It might not have taken place yet. But it was probably not important because Luke-Acts was about the preaching of the gospel to the ends of the earth with boldness and without hindrance ultimately, and not about Paul, you or me.

"But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." (Acts 20:24) What are you going to do with your life then?
