We confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and yet how is this confession evident in our day to day interactions with others? If you trust in Christ alone for salvation, then you have been granted the ability and responsibility to make the most of what has been given you each day. As the Apostle Paul taught and exampled in his life; “Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:15-17). The outline from the sermon below from Acts 24:1-27 is as follows:
- Blessed are you when they … say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
- When they arrest you … do not worry beforehand or premeditate on what you should say.
- The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord; He turns it wherever He wishes.
