Finished the Race

Today’s reading is Acts 28: 17-31

rootedchristWe now see that Paul has made it to Rome. In Rome, he will preach before the Emperor. In Rome, he will testify to his faith, and in Rome, he will help fan the fires of Christianity that will burn across the Empire, the known world, Western Civilization, and all the world, even to today. Paul has done now what God said that he would do. He had finished that calling.

Now in Rome, Paul would also die for his faith. He would become a martyr, and because of his witness in his life, his conversion, his writings, his church planting, and even in his death, billions would come to know Jesus Christ as Lord. Think of where his journey started. And now look where it will come to an end.

Because of Paul and his work among and with the Gentiles, we are Christians. He was faithful in life and faithful in death. And he tried, with all that he was, to glorify the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

He lived his life for Jesus. May we do the same. And may God use us to bring a world to saving faith.
