(16-22) A Plot to Kill Paul
Before Paul knew of the plot to kill him, the Lord told him, “Take courage, for as you have testified to the facts about me in Jerusalem, so you must testify also in Rome.” So when the son of Paul’s sister told him about the plot, Paul did not become upset or worried. He knew that God would look out for him and would keep him safe until he had accomplished the purpose he had for him. We too can be at peace in the midst of problems when we take courage and place our confidence in the promises of God.
Favorite verse: (17) Paul called one of the centurions and said, “Take this young man to the tribune, for he has something to tell him.”
