FALSE WITNESSES & A CORRUPT OFFICIAL
When God is the Assurance, Deliverance, and Sovereignty over your life, wisdom and courage is the hallmark of your every step. Can we learn from Paul how to deal with confronting false witnesses and a corrupt official?

READING ACTS 24

REFLECTION

  1. Acts 24:1-8. Who was Tertullus and what danger did he present to Paul? (He was not any ordinary person). List the lies Tertullus and the other Jews said.

  2. Have you ever been accused wrongly?

  3. Acts 24:14-21. How did Paul defend himself? What did he mention v17-18? What was Paul’s focus and why?

  4. Acts 24:22-26.Did Felix really understand "the Way"? Do you know of someone who seems to know Jesus but do not have the evidence of one who is truly born again?

  5. Acts 24:22. What can you say about Felix’s attitude toward Paul?

CONTEMPLATION

Paul defended himself with wisdom and courage that can only come from his true knowledge of, and discipleship in, Jesus Christ. These are some fruit of a person, who is truly born again in Jesus. Focus your life in Christ Jesus. Go through the Bible and list the characteristics of a truly born again believer of Jesus.
