Protection

In Acts 18:1 – 17 we find Paul toward the end of his 2nd missionary journey.  This one was a bit different than the previous journey.  He stayed longer in places.  This is toward the end of this journey.  We find him at Corinth and we see that he invests 18 months into the people of that church.
Protection
Just before Paul “settles” in Corinth, the Lord tells him in Acts 18:9 – 10 that he is to speak freely and no one will attack him anymore.

In the next paragraph the Jews rose up and brought him before the procounsel.  Gallio was unimpressed with their charges and sent them away.  Paul was not beaten, but the leader of the synagogue was beaten.

God had promised Paul protection.  Here we read, immediately, that protection was given.  Not only was it given God used the Roman government to protect Paul.  This was not the first or the last time in Acts that Paul’s status as a Roman citizen was used by the Lord to advance the gospel and protect His messenger.

Point is, we can trust our Lord in our endeavors to spread His Word.
