Scriptures: Acts 26:12-19
Life is full of opportunities in disguise. Apostle Paul was in prison for what he believed and preached, but this did not stop him from making the most out of every opportunity. Paul was called to present his case to King Agrippa, but Paul takes this time to present the Gospel to the king.
Paul believed God could change the heart of anyone: even an evil King! A man who was in an intimate relationship with his own sister, yet Paul still believed God would intervene. Do you believe that Jesus can change anyone anywhere?
Paul believed it was God's job to convict people of their sins. He preached that God can turn us from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God. We need to let Jesus fix what is broken in people's lives. Paul did not know he was broken till Jesus showed him.
Paul believed in the power of the message of Christ. Paul stayed on message, the Gospel: Christ crucified and Christ risen. We are not called to talk people into becoming Christians: we are called to share our deliverance and how it came through the power of Christ.
Paul believed that one message could change the world and he always remembered what that message had done for him! Opportunities in disguise are about to come your way! Will you take the time to present the Gospel? The Gospel is the power of God unto someone's salvation.
