"My chains are in Christ."
Text: Philippians 1:13
The historian Luke noted the times when Paul was imprisoned in the Book of Acts.
1. In Philippi Acts 16:24 (briefly)
2. In Caesarea Acts 24:27 (for at least 2 years)
3. In Rome Acts 28:16, 30 (at least another 2 years)
The apostle Paul’s reflection about his imprisonments was noted in the following text.
“In stripes above measure,
in prisons more frequently, in deaths often.”
2 Corinthians 11:23
There were other times when Paul suffered imprisonment as well. Not all his movements were recorded in the Book of Acts.
BEARING WITNESS EVEN IN PRISON
Paul made use of every opportunity to bear witness for the Lord Jesus Christ, including the times he spent in jail.
“So that it has become evident to the whole palace guard,
and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ.”
