Monday: The Shipwreck — 6 Comments

  1. God is wonderful. It is always worthy to be by Him. We forget that God is the owner of the future. He knows so much more than us. We should always let Him be "at the wheel" of our lives.

  2. As in the story of Jonah, God is here showing Himself to those who may not have known Him. How many of those traveling with Paul will join him with Jesus under the Tree of Life? We'll only know then if we are there with them. The Master of the weather doesn't need to calm a storm to save lives, although He can, yet He knows the best means for winning the confidence of sinners in His power to save all who trust in Him. Can the Lord use us in every circumstance that comes our way?

  3. Interesting lesson many are saved from the solders because of Paul's presences i think as Christians or as Adventist Paul should be our examples and because of our presence in our communities many be saved

  4. Paul's level of faith is amazing. He was willing to follow Christ everywhere in spite of the consequences. Of his sufferings he said, "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the Gospel of the grace of God", Acts 20:24.
    I believe his missionary spirit was the secret behind the power of his witness.It is through obeying the great commission that we become changed and His will becomes ours. This is the work that the devil is desperate to hinder. As a result those who are working for Christ tend to face many challenges. But it is in these challenges that Christ fights for them and blesses them in a special way. It is also through these challenges that Christ's voice is so clear that even gentile soldiers can hear it and survive.
    When we surrender ourselves unreservedly to God we will find ourselves in a position closer to Him where the devil's attacks cannot reach us. This is the kind of work that will free us from the cares and riches and pleasures of this life that coke the word, Like 8:14.

  5. The fact that a single life was not lost as prophesied by Paul is amazing. But the important part for us to remember is, that salvation did not come in the absence of peril and discomfort. It was not a beautiful soft land. I just had one of those events in my life that at times, did not appear that it would end well at all. God came through despite my doubts and the financial peril we went through along the way. To God be the glory!
