Sermon Notes

When the plot to kill Paul was uncovered, he was sneaked out of Jerusalem to Caesarea at night under guard (Acts 23:12-31). Paul was safe, for now, but he was still a prisoner, and he would soon stand trial before three rulers. Through his defense, Paul reveals how our identity as Christians has nothing to do with the size of our bank accounts, our marital status, how many children we have, or where we work. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are not defined by the mistakes of our past, the sins of our youth, or the skeletons in our closets. Our identity is found in Jesus Christ. Only when our lives fall into orbit around His person and His work will everything else find its proper place.
