Acts 28:1-31 After we were brought safely through, we then learned that the island was called Malta...
think about it.
What kind of reception did Paul get on Malta (28:1-6)? How did Paul minister to those who ministered to him (28:7-10)? What do you learn here about the fellowship of believers (28:11-17)? What does Paul do for those believers in Rome (28:17-31)? Despite all the setbacks and trouble, how would you describe Paul's spiritual condition? How does his example inspire or encourage you?
Well we wind up Acts today with Paul's stay in Malta and then, finally, his arrival and his two years in Rome. As I finished reading this book, I thought to myself What was there in Acts that really caught my attention and will help me in my walk going forward? There were quite a few things that came to mind, but the biggie for me was how Paul was so grounded in the Word and in Christ. His solid relationship and foundation with the Lord enabled him to not only navigate well through every circumstance he encountered, but to be a bold and outstanding witness in the process. Oh, to be more like Paul.
So what were some of your takeaways from Acts or Paul specifically? Did you discover anything new as you read? Have you put anything into practice as a result of your time in Acts? Tami W.
