Tonight there is the Impact Students small group at the Hinkle house. Nathan will be covering Acts chapters 18-24 so if you have not read some parts of those chapters, I encourage you to at least look over them. If you have not read any of these chapters please come anyway because you can still participate.
Paul is brought to Felix where he gives his account to. Tertullus brought charges against Paul. Verse 5-6, "We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him." These chargers are outrageous but Paul keeps his cool and addresses Felix. His reply, however, falls short and Paul is put into prison. Felix gives Paul many freedoms while in "prison". This surprisingly turns into a great opportunity to preach. Paul had few restrictions and was able to preach to whoever came in contact with him while under Roman guard. What could be better? Has God every taken something bad in your life and turned it into something good? What happened? When we pray, we need to be sure we are praying for God's way and not our way. Why is it better to pray for God's way and not our way?
