A Fulfilled Mission: Imprisonment

A Fulfilled Mission: Imprisonment

According to Acts 28:14–15, Paul was a bound prisoner; he was in chains in Rome. Paul could have viewed his imprisonment as a set back or as a hindrance to the gospel. But instead he saw his difficult situation as a way to further the gospel. In fact, Paul believed that his imprisonment actually advanced the Gospel. Through his imprisonment, he proclaimed a compelling message: “The gospel is so powerful, so essential, I am willing to spend my life in chains for it.”
