Good morning everyone! Acts 26 is really awesome because it is about Paul giving his defense to king Agrippa and you will see that Agrippa even says that he is almost convinced to become a Christian.
Paul is given a chance to give his defense to king Agrippa. Notice that Paul breaks his testimony into three parts:
- Who he was (v. 11)
- What happened to change him (v. 13)
- Who he is NOW (v. 20)
Paul in the middle of his testimony is interrupted by Festus who says, "You are out of your mind, Paul!" (v. 24) Paul replies by addressing the kng. Agrippa even says he is almost convinced to be a Christian! At the end of the defense, the king says to Festus, "This man could have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar." Paul's obedience to Jesus resulted in a trial very similar to Jesus' trail. How has your obedience to Jesus resulted in similarities to Jesus' experience? How has Christ brought light into your life? How can you pass on that light to someone else this week?
