If I was called upon to stand before a king, president or dictator to defend my faith, probably I would stumble over my words, my knees would knock till they were black and blue, and the end result would be very embarrassing. Not for Paul! He was so confident in what God had accomplished in his life that it did not need any rehearsing or practice; it was lived out daily in his walk with the Lord. That is the way I want to live!
As you study these verses in Acts 26, think carefully about how God has worked through His grace in saving your life. The more you and I consider God’s grace in Christ toward us the more we will have a clear testimony to spontaneously tell others.
Acts 26:1-11. In this opportunity before King Agrippa, Paul sums up his life as a Pharisee and persecutor of the church. The Jews accused him because he believed that God _______ the dead.
Acts 26:12-32. The pivotal point of Paul’s testimony was his personal encounter with Jesus on the Damascus road. He was not ___________ to this heavenly vision which open the door to preach repentance and faith in Christ to Jew and Gentile.
God planned before the ages of time that you and I should be witnesses for Him from the very transformation that has taken place in our own lives. That was Paul’s motivation to witness wherever he went and so it should be ours.
