Paul Makes the Most of It

From Series: For the Sake of the Gospel, Volume 2

Acts 28:16-22  (ID: 2496)

Sentenced to house arrest and chained to a guard in Rome, Paul continued to make the most of every opportunity to win people to Christ. The way he lived his life, said his prayers, and dictated his letters, for instance, provided opportunities to the Gospel with the Roman guards. Meanwhile, his addresses to the local Jewish leaders paved the way for further interaction. As Alistair Begg notes, Paul’s imprisonment ultimately served as a platform to advance the Gospel rather than an impediment to silence him.


16And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier who guarded him.
