The back-end of the Acts of the Apostles is ‘no place for the fainthearted,’ is it now?
Paul, besieged from every side, cleverly employs all his nous in ‘fighting the good fight.’
But, as we know, the ‘flood waters’ often prevail and we have to move to a different modus operandi.
Paul does just that, egged on by an angelic dream:
The Lord appeared to Paul and said, ‘Courage! You have borne witness for me in Jerusalem, now you must do the same in Rome.
Paul has gone to another level. With God’s grace, so can we.
