New Testament In a Year: July 19 – Acts 22

Acts 22
(1-20) Paul Speaks to the People
Paul shares his testimony of how Jesus changed his life. He used to be like the people in the mob who now sought to destroy him. He used to think that he was doing God’s will by persecuting the people of God. When Paul came to know Christ as his Savior, he received not only physical sight, but also spiritual sight. He came to realize that the true will of God was for him to be a witness for Him.

(22-29) Paul and the Roman Tribune
The people did not want to hear the rest of what Paul had to say, and he was taken away to the barracks. People are not always going to want to hear what we have to say about Jesus and how He changed our lives either, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to tell them.

Favorite verse: (14) And he said, ‘The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Righteous One and to hear a voice from his mouth.
