Be an aroma

Philippians 1 verse 13, “…it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ.”

Whatever you are going through today has a greater purpose behind!  Pause and think!  It is not about you but it is about what God is going to do through you.  All problems and sufferings are not God ordained though, yet, we got to discern for God’s will and act accordingly.  In the year

 

I believe the whole imperial guard numbered almost nine thousand soldiers and they all came to KNOW Jesus Christ through a prisoner called Apostle Paul.  Paul could not have had a mega meeting in that surrounding but his exemplary behavior, conduct and his gentleness would have spread across that palace where he was kept under arrest.  Living among suave “white collar” swindlers, manipulators and atheists, you have to live an example and show the world that “this is how we got to live”.  Paul spoke about Jesus Christ who died for us and was resurrected and is now living inside of us.  Friend, sometimes our pain and imprisonment becomes the canvas on which we can paint the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Do not despise your pain, failure and disappointments, in the midst of your trials, use this as a platform to speak about your savior.

 

Paul proved to be such an extraordinary prisoner, that stories about him circulated very quickly. Each of the Praetorian soldiers took a turn guarding Paul and therefore heard his story from his own lips, every soldier who was assigned this duty heard the gospel, and perhaps something of his testimony, and then told others. Paul was neither a hardened criminal nor a suave “white collar” swindler, instead of protesting his innocence or gauging his chances of impressing Caesar’s court, he spent his time talking about Jesus, who had been crucified.  No matter what season you may be in your life, share the Gospel.
