GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL
3:1 For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles—
3:1 Paul was under house arrest in Rome for preaching about Christ. The religious leaders in Jerusalem, who felt threatened by Christ’s teachings and didn’t believe he was the Messiah, pressured the Romans to arrest Paul and bring him to trial for treason and for causing rebellion among the Jews. Paul had appealed for his case to be heard by the emperor, and he was awaiting trial (see Acts 28:16-31). Even though he was under arrest, Paul maintained his firm belief that God was in control of all that happened to him. Do circumstances make you wonder if God has lost control of this world? Like Paul, remember that no matter what happens, God directs the world’s affairs. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and know that even in such a world of seeming chaos and division and anti-CHRIST society that GOD is still in control and is masterfully working his plan in our lives and in thee seemingly out of control world we live in!!!
