Acts 27:33-38

Just before dawn Paul urged them all to eat. “For the last fourteen days,” he said, “you have been in constant suspense and have gone without food—you haven’t eaten anything. 34 Now I urge you to take some food. You need it to survive. Not one of you will lose a single hair from his head.” 35 After he said this, he took some bread and gave thanks to God in front of them all. Then he broke it and began to eat. 36 They were all encouraged and ate some food themselves. 37 Altogether there were 276 of us on board. 38 When they had eaten as much as they wanted, they lightened the ship by throwing the grain into the sea.

  1. He urged them to eat, he promised their safety, he blessed their food, and they ate. He had access into 275 people’s lives because he was obedient and willing to be used. He had been in prison for over 2 years and he happily served God on a sinking ship in a hurricane
