Spiritual Triumph

In the twenty-seventh and twenty-eighth chapters of the book of Acts may be found an account of Paul's journey to Rome. A careful study of this narrative, so fraught with proofs of God's governing care, is indeed an inspiration to the student who is striving to overcome error's arguments of material power and destruction.

Paul, because of his preaching of the Word, was being taken a prisoner to appear before Cæsar; but nowhere do we read that he yielded to suggestions of self-pity or resentment because of the treatment. He was doing all to the glory of God; and we cannot doubt that love and gratitude filled his consciousness at this time of testing. And does not gratitude portend a sure victory over self?
