S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Then Agrippa said to Paul, “Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?”
Religious Jews in Jerusalem caused a riot against the teaching of Paul and would have had him killed had he not appealed to Rome, as a Roman citizen. Consequently, he was moved from Jerusalem to Caesarea to await being moved to Rome. While there, he met with King Agrippa. Agrippa was over the territory that Paul was leaving to go to Rome. While defending his actions, Paul said to the King, “I know you know what the prophets have taught.” That convicted the King so much that he hurled back at Paul, “Do you really think you can get me to be a Christian in this short a period of time?” Paul then replied, “I’ll Do Whatever It Takes.”
Paul told the King, “If it takes a short time or a long time, I want you and everyone listening right now to be exactly like me except for these chains that I’m in.” To me, that sounds like Paul was saying, “I’ll Do Whatever It Takes” for you to know the joy I have in Jesus. Those of us who serve and worship the Lord Jesus as our personal savior are so completely engrossed in following His life and teachings and promoting them to everyone we know that it’s easy to hear Paul say, “I’ll Do Whatever It Takes.” I truly want to be a witness for the Lord. I want to take a stand for Jesus, no matter the cost. I want my friends to know the peace and love and joy that I’ve found in Christ. So, why not join me as I join the Apostle and say that when it comes to bringing people to a knowledge of Jesus, “I’ll Do Whatever It Takes.”
I’m here for You again today. Whatever You need me to do to let people know about You, I’m ready. “I’ll Do Whatever It Takes.” Amen
