Summary: The Shipwreck

 

As we now turn our attention to the New Testament, we’ll be reading from the book of Acts, chapter 27, verses 21 through 44. Paul’s counsel gets rejected. I mean, what did a Jewish tent maker know about sailing a ship anyway? So the advice of the experts and the vote of the majority carried the day when you are impatient and uncomfortable and when the golden opportunity seems to come along, beware a storm may be brewing. And they hear Paul’s encouragement.

Paul was right to say, I told you so. But he followed it with a word of promise from the Lord and a word of encouragement from his believing heart. At a time like that, people need promises, not preaching. And they were following Paul’s example. Paul publicly gave thanks and directed their hearts to God, which encouraged everybody.

The weary passengers needed strength for what lay ahead, and that meant taking time to eat. Paul was practical as well as very perceptive. Although Paul started the voyage as a prisoner and passenger, he ended it as the captain of the ship. The ship was lost, but by the grace of God, Paul’s presence saved all the passengers. Can the Lord depend on you to sail by faith?

When you face the storms? Can others depend on you? And with that, let’s begin our reading today in the New Testament.
