Whoops – I got so far behind this week that I almost skipped Wonderwhat. This Sunday we’ll be reading all of Acts chapter 24. For the next three chapters we are going to be focused on Paul’s court appearances. We’ll actually meet an ancient Roman Lawyer in the passage.
It will help you to read a little bit about Antonius Felix – he was not a good dude.
There’s something that jumps out at me from v10. How does Paul say he’s willing to give his defense…with what attitude?
How do you think it’s possible for Paul to have this kind of attitude during his court appearance?
What kinds of attitudes do you find yourself adopting when faced with a severe trial? What can we learn from Paul’s earlier experiences and his presentation of defense about how he maintained his composure during his trial? It’s something to think about which will both challenge and encourage us, I believe.
The last Surf-N-Grill of the season is upon us – hope to see you out there!
