Thanked God

Acts 28:11-15

11 过了三个月,我们上了一艘亚历山太来的船。这船在岛上过冬,船的名字是“宙斯双子”。12 到了叙拉古,我们停留了三天。13 从那里绕道航行,来到利基翁。过了一天,起了南风,第二天到达部丢利。14 我们在那里遇见一些弟兄,他们邀请我们一同住了七天。这样,我们就来到了罗马。15 弟兄们听到了我们的消息,就从罗马出来,在亚比乌和三馆迎接我们。保罗见了他们,就感谢上帝,胆子也壮了起来

11 After three months we put out to sea in a ship that had wintered in the island—it was an Alexandrian ship with the figurehead of the twin gods Castor and Pollux. 12 We put in at Syracuse and stayed there three days. 13 From there we set sail and arrived at Rhegium. The next day the south wind came up, and on the following day we reached Puteoli. 14 There we found some brothers and sisters who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome. 15 The brothers and sisters there had heard that we were coming, and they travelled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these people Paul thanked God and was encouraged. 






Lessons Learn

This passage warns people who have great gifts of the Spirit to beware of obscuring God’s glory by extolling themselves; and we are all taught generally that we must thank the ministers of God’s grace in such a way that the glory remains God’s alone. The details here show that it was God who healed the man, making Paul his minister.

Here also shows us that the seed of Gospel had been spread abroad, for there was already a church ay Puteoli.
