Daily Bible Reading: Acts 28:16 – 31
Verse of the Day: Acts 28:30 – 31 – “And he abode two whole years in his own hired dwelling, and received all that went in unto him, preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching the things concerning the Lord Jesus Christ with all boldness, none forbidding him.”
What a way to conclude the book of Acts. After all that Paul had been through, he made it to Rome. While under arrest, no one came to bring charges against him. So for two years he was allowed to stay in a dwelling that he rented. This gave him total freedom to proclaim Jesus and the Kingdom of God.
The last words in this book speak of him being bold in what he said, and that no one stopped him. The plan of God came to a conclusion. We know from other books in the New Testament that ultimately Paul was rearrested, tried and executed. But this part of God’s plan spread the gospel right in the heart of the Roman government and city.
Prayer: Jesus, may I speak with all boldness about You and the Kingdom. I do not face what Paul did, I am blessed. Thank You. Amen.
