Acts 28:1-16 To the Ends of the Earth, Part 1 Summary: Last week we saw God's powerful hand as He saved Paul and the passengers on a ship from a scary storm. But his trials aren't over yet! He gets bitten by a snake, but God protects him! Today let's look at the rest of the journey, where God protects and uses Paul as he lands on the island of Malta: Outline: 1. God's power 2. God's promise 3. God's provision Verse: Acts 1:8 ...And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.Ē Discussion Questions: 1. Why do you think God protected Paul from physical harm (the snake bite)? Should we expect this now? 2. What do we learn about God's providence in this passage? How does he fulfill his promises to Paul? To you and me? 3. What was Paul's response when he came to fellow Christians in Rome?

Acts 27 Peril on the Sea Summary: Have you ever been on a boat? They can be a lot of fun! But if you've ever been on a boat in a storm, it can be really scary!

Why is this helpful to compare these accounts? 2. How does Paul's confidence in God's will help you, even though you and I don't get specific words about the future? 3. If it was God's plan for Paul to preach in Rome, why might He have allowed this storm? What might that tell us about our own sufferings?

Acts 25-26 Defense Before Kings Summary: A few weeks ago we talked about what it would be like to get in trouble for something you know you didnít do. That is whatís happening to Paul in Acts 25-26. Letís listen to his trust in Godís plan as he makes a defense before the King: 1. A certain verdict 2. A servant and witness 3. Almost persuaded Verse: Acts 26:16 (ESV): But rise and stand upon your feet, for I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and witness... Discussion Questions: 1. How would you describe Paulís defense? What do you see in it that helps us understand our calling as a servant and witness for Jesus in the world? 2. Why does Paul appeal to Caesar? How is God at work by his providence behind everything in this narrative? How might God be calling you to trust Him as you think about your own future?
