Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

because of my chains

Paul after proclaiming the gospel of Christ in Philippi, was arrested, beaten and locked in chains in a dungeon. He could have questioned God’s plans for his life.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 (NASB)

He could have questioned God’s plan, BUT that is not what happened!!

He refused to allow his relationship with God to lessen just because others had devalued him.

“Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.” Philippians 1:12-14

What a great way to witness to the palace guard. Different soldiers took turns guarding him. They were a ready audience. They couldn’t beat him into silence because he was a Roman citizen.

Because of his chains others were stepping out in confidence.  Fear was replaced with boldness.

Who is God wanting your life to impact? Let God use you today to advance the gospel.  Be a witness!  (Acts 1:8)

Proclaiming the gospel!
