renungan harian alkitab,sabtu: acts 23 ” citizens of Rome/ warga negara roma

Acts 22:27-29 (NKJV)  Then the commander came and said to him, “Tell me, are you a Roman?” He said, “Yes.”
The commander answered, “With a large sum I obtained this citizenship.” And Paul said, “But I was born a citizen.”
Then immediately those who were about to examine him withdrew from him; and the commander was also afraid after he found out that he was a Roman, and because he had bound him.

para pembaca renungan yang terkasih,  rasul Paulus (Paul) dipilih Tuhan secara spesifik untuk menjadi rasul bagi bangsa non yahudi, Tuhan memilihnya bukan hanya karenapertobatan Paulus yg sungguh sungguh, dan hatinya yang sepenuhnya diberikan pada Yesus, masih ada hal lain,yakni: Paulus lahir di Roma, warga negara Roma.

Dengan kewarganegaraannya Paulus dapat berkeliling dunia, yg pada waktu itu dikuasai kerajaan Roma,inilah keunggulan lainnya dari Paulus.

Banyak orang orang yg menyesali warna kulit,asal kelahiran, asal kesukuan mereka, saya mempunyai kabar baik jangan menyesali,tapi ucapkan syukur itu adalah berkat

.

Ucapkan syukur, karena Tuhan akan memakai keberadaan diri kita justru menjadi suatu keuntungan untuk kita melayani Tuhan. Sama seperti rasul Paulus.

have a blessed saturday
