Paul — Arrest in Jerusalem — The Jews oppose Paul for being called to the Gentiles.

Today’s Readings:
Reading 1: Acts 21
Reading 2: Acts 22
Reading 3: Philippians 3

Paul was called by God out of strong opposition to the church and into a life of sacrificial witness facing the same kind of opposition. Today that lifestyle leads to the conclusion which was inevitable: the Jews have Paul arrested by causing an uproar. But this gives Paul the opportunity to tell his story in giving his defense, so God gets the glory!

How would God get the glory from the struggles in your life? Maybe you can testify, as Paul does to the Philippians, that God’s power has been seen in your sufferings?

Have a great day!

Mark.
