Acts 26:29-32

29 Paul replied, “Short time or long—I pray to God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains.”

30 The king rose, and with him the governor and Bernice and those sitting with them. 31 After they left the room, they began saying to one another, “This man is not doing anything that deserves death or imprisonment.”

32 Agrippa said to Festus, “This man could have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar.”


One response to “Acts 26:29-32

  1. Paul is a prisoner, in chains, yet he is so blessed in his conversion and in walking in the Way, that he tells his audience that he wished they could be as he were, excepting his prisoner status.

    He felt so blessed and at peace in the knowledge of his salvation, that he sought to share that situation with the king and his court. He was not lamenting his faith that got him into this situation, he was unshaken and unchanged.

    When my faith causes me conflict, I look at my own self interests and try to protect myself. I should be looking to share the life changing affect the Way has had on my life and seek to changed others lives by exposing them to truth.
