Paul was calm in the midst of the storm.
1. Commitment to the Captain of salvation - "whose I am and whom I serve"
2. Communication with the Captain of salvation - "stood by me this night... and said"
3. Comfort of the Captain of salvation - "be of good cheer"
In the midst of life's storms look to the Captain of my salvation!
Walk with the Lord and stay calm in the midst of the storm!!!
Everyone and everything seemed to be going against Paul except God.
1. Military crowd - no control over decisions and treatment from soldiers.
2. Political crowd - no control over lawyers and and back room deals
3. Religious crowd - no control over factions or alliances.
4. Accusing crowd - no control over lies, bribes and accusations.
Paul had little or no control over his life but he continued to trust the one who was in total control one thought, word and step at a time.
Many times my life seems out of control and even when I think I have things in control I do not. I need to just keep trusting my Lord!
Walk with the Lord and just keep trusting Him!!!
1. They are corrupt
2. They are concerned
3. They are convicted
Those who are lost need Christ no matter what social or economical class they are in. Be faithful to witness to the up and outers as well as the down and outers.
Walk with the Lord and witness to all men!!!
