A storm tossed about the ship on which Paul and two hundred seventy-five other people traveled, so much so that none of them had eaten in fourteen days, because of the violence of the storm.
However, regardless of the horrific dangers of the journey, Paul continued to live humbly as a Christian and trusted in God.
Then when the apostle spoke, the people on board were ready to listen,
“And when he had said these things, he took bread and gave thanks to God in the presence of them all; and when he had broken it he began to eat. Then they were all encouraged, and also took food themselves” (Acts 27:35, 36).
That is the power of the Christian life. If you are seeking with all your heart to live as Jesus our Teacher instructs us, you likewise have the same influence over people, although you may not have seen it.
When a storm of life comes, keep living as you have been, and others will watch you and learn to trust God.
