Read it! Acts 27
Last night an angel of the God whose I am and whom I serve
stood beside me and said,
“Do not be afraid, Paul. You must stand trial before Caesar;
and God has graciously given you the lives of all who sail with you.”
Think it through
Acts 27 reads like an adventure story—a true one! To be in the midst of a “northeaster,” on a ship with ropes tied around it to keep it together…to be lost at sea for two weeks…to throw over cargo and tackle with your own hands just to keep the ship afloat…and after all of that, to look to one of the ship’s prisoners to be the heroic leader.
