As Paul finally makes it to Rome, he meets with the Jews who wanted to hear more about “this sect” called The Way.
Acts 28:23-24 says: They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. From morning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and tried to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe.
NOTE: There are some people who will just not believe no matter how much you talk to them. If you have someone like this in your life, my suggestion is that you make this a matter of prayer. Ask God to bring someone of influence into their life who can get their attention about Christ or that they go through circumstances that will get their attention where they’ll be open to the Gospel. Still, there will be people who refuse to believe.
And Acts 28:28-31 says: “Therefore I want you to know that God’s salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!” 30 For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31 Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.
What a great way for Luke to end the Book of Acts and for us to start Easter. The last verse in the Book of Acts is so fitting as Paul BOLDLY preached the truth about Jesus and the Kingdom of God.
I hope as you reflect on the resurrection of Christ today you’ll remember your part in the story is to BOLDLY share with others what Christ has done and is doing in your life!
