In verse 5a of our Bible verses today, a man named Tertullus said, “This man is a troublemaker. He causes trouble with the Jews everywhere in the world.” Who was Tertullus talking about? He was talking about Paul.
Many people did not accept Paul’s message that Jesus was God’s Son. These people became angry and called Paul a troublemaker. But Paul was just telling the truth about God’s salvation for all people. Paul said in Acts 24:16, “This is why I always try to do what I believe is right before God and before everyone.”
As Christians, we should always do what is right. But sometimes people do not agree with us. They may become angry and call us troublemakers. We may even have bad things happen to us because we follow Jesus.
Stand strong today for Jesus. Remember to always do what is right. God will be with you and give you strength.
