RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Paul recalled his imprisonment often in his later letters. I believe it was so, because he was experiencing it right at that time! Often we forget that the Epistles of the New Testament were, in fact, letters. What do people write about in letters? Well . . . stuff that’s going on. Paul’s imprisonment (a house-arrest, really) was relevant to his situation, but more importantly to the suffering and loneliness we all experience from time to time.
Paul also addressed that different people were “proclaiming Christ” for different motives. Boy, can I relate! There are so many people who follow this or that for various reasons. What matters is that Jesus’ radical grace comes out, no matter what.
How will you proclaim Christ through your actions today?
