Good from Bad (2)

Yesterday we talked about Paul. He was a prisoner, but God used his bad situation to make good things happen. Our Bible Reading today tells us what happened to Paul when he arrived in Rome.
Verse 16 tells us that in Rome Paul “was allowed to live alone. But a soldier stayed with him to guard him.” Paul did not sit around and do nothing. Right away he got busy telling people about Jesus. Paul “spoke to them all day long, explaining God’s kingdom to them. He used the Law of Moses and the writings of the prophets to persuade them to believe in Jesus” (verse 23b).
Paul was in the bad situation of being a prisoner, but because of that, many people in Rome became Christians. “Paul stayed two full years in his own rented house. He welcomed all the people who came to him” (verse 30).
God is so wonderful! He is able to make good things happen all the time. Praise Him and thank Him for working in your life today.
