A WELCOMING DELEGATION
When Paul saw them, he thanked God and took courage.
In Acts 28, the apostle Paul grappled with disappointment, fatigue, and a sense of failure. He had hoped to be on his way to Spain as a freeman, but he had encountered a series of unfortunate events. -hostility, arrest, a near flogging, a prolonged legal battIe, a terrifying storm,a shipwreck, a snakebite, and a forced march to Rome where prison awaited him. even one of those things happening to you,
But as Paul approached the city of Rome, he looked up and saw a delegation of brothers and sisters coming to meet him. At the sight of his friends, his spirits revived. He thanked God and took courage. As we visualize the scene in our minds, we can almost see a smile coming to his face, a grateful whisper on his lips, and a bounce entering his steps.
You and I have people like that in our lives too, but perhaps we don't thank God enough for them. Take a few moments today to appreciate those who strengthen you and give you courage. Thank God for the blessings that abound, including your brothers and sisters in Christ.
