Context: God had told Paul that he was going to Rome to spread the gospel. Today’s reading continues Paul’s journey to Rome. It has been two years since God told Paul he was going to Rome. God’s plans are not always instantaneous. God had plans for Paul before Paul ever reached Rome. These chapters remind us to slow down in life and use the opportunities we are given for God’s glory, but also to move forward with His plan for our lives. By appealing to Caesar, Paul assured that he would go to Rome, but used the time until he went to continue to spread the news of Jesus’ resurrection wherever he was.
