I always found it interesting that when you read the prison epistles, Paul mentions how he is a prisoner of Christ. The magnitude of something like that didn’t really hit me until recently. When I have unfair things happen, all I can think is “why is this happening?” Paul did not view his imprisonment in that way.
In Ephesians and the other epistles, Paul says he is a prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of others. Not a prisoner of Rome, Caesar, the Jews, but of Christ! Imagine what a witness we could have today if we shared in this view as our circumstances become less than ideal. I am here because of the sovereign hand of my God to serve and love you. I pray that we can share in the same mind as Paul.
Resting in Him,
Pastor Sean Boehm
