Paul's Bumpy Road to Rome (Acts 28:11-16)

Pastor Tom Champness, April 14, 2013
Part of the Guest Speaker series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

"And so we came to Rome." A very simple and short phrase, but there is much behind it. Traced through the book of Acts is the path God lays out for the Apostle Paul in order that he may end up in Rome, as he had planned. God's way is not always the way we plan out, but it is always the best way. See this evidenced in the life of Paul.

Acts 28:11-16

11 After three months we set sail in a ship that had wintered in the island, a ship of Alexandria, with the twin gods as a figurehead. 12 Putting in at Syracuse, we stayed there for three days. 13 And from there we made a circuit and arrived at Rhegium. And after one day a south wind sprang up, and on the second day we came to Puteoli. 14 There we found brothers and were invited to stay with them for seven days. And so we came to Rome. 15 And the brothers there, when they heard about us, came as far as the Forum of Appius and Three Taverns to meet us. On seeing them, Paul thanked God and took courage. 16 And when we came into Rome, Paul was allowed to stay by himself, with the soldier that guarded him. (ESV)
