October 25 "Singularly Owned" Acts 28
Shipwrecked and Stripped.
Yet. Singularly Owned by God.
Preserved from the death of a viper.
An instrument of much good on this island.
Healing the father of the chief man of the island.
Poor Prisoner. Criminal.
Yet. Christians came from afar.
Finding favor with the Captain of the prison.
"Undisturbed Liberty" to preach the Gospel to all comers.
"Paul was a planet, and not a fixed star.
He went to an undisclosed island by way of a storm.
It was God Who had work for Paul to do on the island of Melita.
And it was no small thing that a barbarous people welcomed these shipwrecked.
DEAR GOD, PLEASE CHANGE ME IN MY 10,000 MOMENTS OF CIRCUMSTANCES. Those places where I feel trapped; stuck; lost; abandoned; alone. May I be "singularly owned." May I be an instrument of peace and kindness and love.
