As we go through Acts 27, it’s important to consider the question: “Do I live for the Gospel or does the Gospel live for me?” This week, Paul heads for Rome as a prisoner onboard a ship, and God redirects their path to the island of Malta by a shipwreck. Often times, there’s nothing sensible or logical about God’s ways from our own perspective. As the wind blew, the captains thought that they would have their way, but as everything falls apart, Paul alone has HOPE. We have the power to face our shipwrecks with HOPE, too. As we Hold fast to the Word, Open our hearts to encourage others, Purpose to pray, and Endure by trusting the Lord—God will lead us exactly where He wants us to go.
