Wake Up! Don't Be a Governor Festus!
- Written by Lon Lorton Lon Lorton
In Acts 26, Paul is in the Caesarean prison near the Sea of Galilee. He's been called in by King Agrippa and Governor Festus to present his case for Christianity. He ends up, in the end, turning the tables by putting the two accusers on trial. Paul asks a critical question: "Why do you think it's so incredible that the Lord God raises people from the dead? Why? Tell me, Festus, why is that too incredible for you?" And Festus answers, "You are going mad, Paul. In spite of all your sophisticated learning, you are crazy."
The Lord God raising people from the dead...Incredible? Absolutely! Not impossible, but absolutely incredible! It is incredible that God had created humans for eternity. And when humans messed that up, the God who is capable of all we are amazed at in so many areas of life came up with a solution workable only by God: raise people from the dead...beginning with Christ Jesus. (Festus, are you listening?)
