Such As I

Today's reading: Acts 25:13-26:32

Paul's continued imprisonment gives him yet another opportunity to preach Christ. As we finish Acts 25 and then move on to Acts 26, Paul now gets to present his case, outside the presence of his Jewish accusers, to King Agrippa and Bernice, Festus, Roman military tribunes and many prominent men of the city. It's quite an impressive and unlikely audience, and Paul takes full advantage of the situation, boldly and passionately delivering his testimony. His listeners were drawn in, as was I, when I read his account today over 2,000 years later. I was particularly moved by the genuineness of Paul's response to King Agrippa's comment about Paul trying to persuade him to become a Christian.

"And Paul said, 'Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me this day might become such as I am--except for these chains'" (Acts 26:29).

As I finished chapter 26, I shot up a prayer asking God to help me be more like Paul--willing, ready and then intentional about reaching out to tell anyone I encounter about Christ.

How would you describe your heart when it comes to telling others about Jesus? Are you motivated by, and intentional about, being a witness for Christ? What would you being a "modern day Paul" look like? Tami
