Storms, Shipwrecks, and Vipers

November 1, 2020 Speaker: Keith Kneeshaw Series: ACTS: Witnesses to the Power of God

Passage: Acts 27:1– 28:10

Acts 27 explains Paul's dangerous voyage to Rome which included a tremendous storm and the ship running aground, forcing many to swim for shore or float on pieces of the ship. Even after Paul and the others made it safely to shore, a viper jumped out of the sticks used for the fire and bit Paul's hand.  As you read these events, you can't help but wonder about God's providential care for Paul. It's one thing to have people, with their own evil intentions, oppose Paul. It's quite a different matter when the forces of nature, which are ruled over by the power of God, bring danger and peril into Paul's life. In spite of all of this, we need to hear Paul's charge to the people on the ship, "Take heart, men, for I have faith in God..."
