Today’s Outline For Scripture Union Daily Guide 6 December 2022
Note the warning and assurance that Jesus gave His disciples and us in Mark 13:9‐11. That has been the experience of Paul in the past few days. It is worth noting that Paul’s concern was not to plead for King Agrippa to release him but rather to present the gospel to him and his entourage by sharing the testimony of his conversion and calling. Paul focused on his mission even in the midst of challenges. Paul exhibited tremendous courage in presenting the gospel on every occasion. He saw it here as an opportunity to let King Agrippa hear about repentance from sin and the salvation that comes through faith in Jesus Christ.
We are often intimidated in the presence of people in high positions but we should ask the Holy Spirit to give us courage to tell those the Lord brings our way about Jesus and His power to save. Now take time to think through Paul’s conversion story and compare it with yours. Your conversion may not have been as dramatic as Paul’s but is your present lifestyle a proof of an encounter with Jesus? Even though your conversion story may differ from Paul’s, true conversion does not remain unnoticed.
And So: Is your present life a testimony and proof of an encounter with Jesus?
