Scripture:   Acts 26: 1  NIV  Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You have permission to speak for yourself.  ”So Paul motioned with his hand and began his defense:

Observation:    Festus, the ruler of Judea, was bringing Paul before King Agrippa in order to determine what charges should be brought against Paul who was being sent for trial before Caesar.   Paul was given what we all have: the right to speak for ourselves.              

Application:   When I stand before God, only Jesus will speak for me.  How proper it is that while here on earth, I speak for Him. In fact, God, Himself has given me permission to speak!  My words and my actions speak for me in testimony of Jesus!

Prayer:   Lord, may my actions speak so loud that if I do not have opportunity to use words, may those around me clearly see my appreciation for you!   Amen
