Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

On Trial for Christ, Part 2 of 3 (The Legacy of a Converted Man)

April 18, 2016

The Apostle Paul saw every encounter with people as a chance to share the gospel. Even when he was in prison, he didn’t miss opportunities to tell of his faith. Let’s observe Paul as he stands before Roman authorities to declare the truth of God.

Paul’s ministry in Jerusalem caused his enemies to have him arrested on false charges. He was sent to Caesarea, Rome’s government center in the region. He languished in prison, waiting to answer these charges before King Agrippa. But when he finally got it, Paul seized his opportunity to speak.

Boldness is the willingness to do what must be done no matter the cost. Paul took a stand for the ages atop Mars Hill, telling Greek philosophers the truth about God and the Savior. But how can we be as bold as Paul?

When you stand on Mars Hill in Athens, you’re standing where history happened. Paul the Apostle stood on that same rock, telling the philosophers of his day about the true God. They were the intellectual cream of the crop, but in Paul, in the message he bore, they found their match.

Can the gospel stand up against modern philosophy? It did in ancient Greece. Paul sparred verbally with both Stoics and Epicureans. The truth of Jesus and His resurrection is our message, and we can boldly proclaim it like Paul.

When Paul reached Greece, he was a fearless witness for Christ in a pagan culture. He explained the true God to Greek philosophers. Paul is a role model as to how we must confront the world with the gospel.

Suffering for Christ has come into sharp focus as ISIS brutally kills believers just for following Jesus. The same fate may await us, but our Christian lives have almost been too easy. Do we know how to suffer? Let’s look at Paul’s example.

Paul wrote to Philippian believers, while he was in Roman chains. His counsel is blunt: it is given to us to believe in Jesus and also to suffer for His sake. Many Christians like the abundant life, but cringe when suffering comes. Yet this is our calling as believers.

It’s no picnic to be a follower of Christ. The more you are faithful to Him, the more the world will hate you, and the more the devil will try to stop you. The Apostle Paul had to defend himself against wolves in sheep’s clothing. There were and are false prophets in the church.

Like salmon swimming upstream, living the Christian life goes against the flow of culture. You can’t help but encounter enemies. Suffering for Christ is not a popular topic, but it is a part of what believers face around the world. Paul faced suffering head on.

Salvation is not something you choose to buy on a grocer’s shelf. You don’t compare the pros and cons of trusting Christ. Far from it. Every time someone is transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, it’s because God initiated a divine transformation.
