Affirmed To Be Alive
by Gary J. Borgstede  
10/02/2011 / Devotionals


Scripture

Acts 25:18-19 "When the accusers stood up, they brought no accusation against him [Paul] of such things as I supposed, but had some questions against him about their own religion and about a certain Jesus, who had died, whom Paul affirmed to be alive."

Observation

In these verses, Paul is being brought before King Agrippa accused by the Jews as "a plague and a creator of dissension among all the Jews around the world" because of his fervent testimony about Jesus. In the face of such accusation, Paul stood firm in faith with courage before the king and eloquently expressed the good news of the gospel and the hope that was in him through Christ.

Application

To be a light in the present darkness of this world, I must be willing to risk the approval of people by sharing the good news of the gospel to those who are perishing. In doing so, some people may bring false accusation against me because of their pride and offense with the name of Jesus and the good news of His kingdom. However, like Paul, I can stand firm in the face of such accusation with the courage of Christ knowing that Jesus is with me and will be faithful to be my very present help in time of need.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, I praise You for You are Jehovah Tsidkenu, the Lord my Righteousness! Thank You for giving me the courage to stand firm in faith as I affirm to others through my testimony that You are alive and Your kingdom reigns. Give me boldness in Christ to share the good news of the gospel with others and the wisdom to build Your kingdom in my sphere of influence. I love You Jesus! Amen!
