Even in prison, Paul still used his time to preach the Gospel, and therefore he saw every day, as an opportunity to advance God’s Kingdom.
If we were Paul and locked up in chains, could we do the same thing?
It’s one thing to be walking in God’s glory and seeing the advancement of the Good News whilst in a jam-packed-stadium, or standing on a pulpit in front of thousands, but would any of us actually think our purpose is being worked out within a prison cell?
Reading this today, it reminds me that God is omnipresent and so, you could be in the deepest cave, or the highest mountain, alone in the desert, or in front of a nation, yet wherever you find yourself, our purpose never changes and nor should we.
How many are thinking God has forgotten us because our circumstances in life look different to the Words we have been given?
What does your “prison” look like? Are you a kitchen hand? A kindergarten teacher? A warehouseman? A dustbin collector? A city banker? Or even a solo parent?
Wherever you are in this world, keep going. Tell people about Jesus and God will show you that even in your darkest times, He uses all things for His glory because our purpose should motivate us, to keep pushing forward, no matter what
