Road Rules: Lessons from Paul's Journey to Rome

The journey matters.  Luke began the story of Paul's journey to Rome in Acts 21, and spent the next several chapters describing all that Paul went through to get there.  In this message from Acts 28:1-16, we see the end of Paul's odyssey–his arrival to Rome.  As we reflect on Paul's adventure, we'll discover some "road rules" that will help encourage us to persevere in the trial we'll face on our own life's journey.

Storms

Whether you like storms or not, sometimes we know when they are coming and sometimes they pop up "outta nowhere."  Paul's experience with Luke & Aristarchus on the Mediterranean Sea has a profound impact on how we respond when our life is turned upside down.  When wave after wave crashes in on us, what do we do?  God makes is presence evident and we can anchor our souls to His promises.  God always reveals His purposes in His time.  These are truths we can cling to while navigating the storms.
