Acts 27: 33-36 “As day was about to dawn, Paul urged them all to take some food, saying, “Today is the fourteenth day that you have continued in suspense and without food, having taken nothing. 34Therefore I urge you to take some food. For it will give you strength, for not a hair is to perish from the head of any of you.” 35And when he had said these things, he took bread, and giving thanks to God in the presence of all he broke it and began to eat. 36Then they all were encouraged and ate some food themselves.” Paul was sailing to Rome and the ship was about to crash and sink. But God told him that he must go to Rome. So being confident he did not worry about himself but turned to the others on the ship to comfort and encourage them. Eating and giving thanks to God Paul acted like Jesus and helped the people to have strength and courage. We are called in the same way to trust God and to think of others more than ourselves because we know that nothing can separate us from the love of God. Lord fill us with your Holy Spirit so we can trust and obey you and encourage others today. For your glory Jesus and our joy. In your name we pray. Amen
