“I think myself happy, King Agrippa, because today I shall answer for myself before you concerning all the things of which I am accused by the Jews,” Acts 26:2

Paul is on trial, again, for teaching and preaching Jesus. Well, technically he is on trial for causing riots for which the Romans do not stand. But it was his teaching Jesus and it’s results in the towns that instigated the riots. His accusers had plenty of evidence and Paul is not afraid of this because most of it is true, except for the stuff that they made up.

Do I cause trouble as a Christian? Not intentionally, but as a consequence of teaching, or at the very least being an example of Jesus? Is there enough evidence in my life to convict me of being a follower of Jesus? I hope so. I certainly hope The Lord sees that there is! If there isn’t then it isn’t a question of trying harder but submitting more of myself to Him.

As John the Baptist said, I must decrease and He must increase. Lord, I want to take up my cross daily, I want to walk in the Spirit and deny the flesh, I want to be crucified and no loner live so that you can live in me. Then the evidence will be overflowing.
