August 21, 2021 – Acts 22-28

These closing chapters of Acts tell us how tenacious Paul was in preaching the gospel. Chapter by chapter, follow the narrative.


21-22 --> Threatened in Jerusalem by the rioting masses, he testified of his Lord.

23 --> Hauled before the hostile Sanhedrin, which wanted his death, he spoke of the resurrection.

24 --> For two years at the mercy of Felix, Paul explained the “Way” and taught about the resurrection.

25 --> Before Festus, he was unwavering.

26 --> Brought to king Agrippa, Paul sought to persuade him to believe.

27 --> On his way to Rome, he endured hardship and wreck of his ship.

28 --> Languishing in a Roman jail for two years, still Paul “preached the kingdom of God, and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 28:31).


Put Paul before a rioting multitude seeking his death and he will speak of his Lord. Put him before hostile judges and kings who had power to grant or take away his life and he will speak of Christ. Put him in a prison, let him be shipwrecked, stranded on an island and he will preach. Lock him up and still he will preach the gospel! May we have the same passion and tenacity for the gospel!


Fly abroad, thou mighty Gospel!

Win and conquer, never cease;

May thy lasting wide dominion

Multiply and still increase.

Sway Thy scepter,

Saviour, all the world around! --William Williams (1750)
