So I can’t help but share a portion of my readings this week. There are so many good lessons here, but I will make only one point.
Verse 42 The soldiers wanted to kill the prisoners to make sure they didn’t swim ashore and escape. 🏊 🏊
Verse 43 But the commanding officer wanted to spare Paul, so he didn’t let them carry out their plan. 👮✋
Just one quick thought…. Like Paul, who was also a prisoner on this boat, everyone in life has been bound by something, maybe by fear, or by doubt, and yes even by sin. But if the Commanding Officer Jesus Christ has spared your life … and you see others around you who are in bondage … Allow Jesus to set them free. Allow the Commanding Officer to make that call. And if it is within your power … do the same. Help to loose their chains. Share with others the grace of Jesus that has been freely given to you. Because “If the Son sets you free…you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)
Verse 44… So everyone escaped “safely to shore.” 🏊🗻👍
