Prisoner of Christ
How is it that the apostle Paul has such confidence that he can declare that he is a prisoner—not of Rome, but of Christ? "For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles".
These are incredible words to write from a prison cell. The apostle gives no credit to Rome for what he goes through but directs all sovereign authority to the Lord, where it belongs.
Listen to this message and marvel at the work of Christ in Paul, and his message to you, so that you might have confidence even in suffering for the sake of the gospel.
