(Sermon) Acts 23.12-end - Surrounded by the Army

Paul discovers that his life is in danger because of what he has done in the past - we must pray not only for forgiveness of our sins but freedom from their effects.  The lies of the letter to Felix show us how we all paint our own story in the 'best light' but God's true light shines into our hearts so we must look in the mirror of truth and repent of our lies to others and ourselves.   Finally, Paul's army escort teaches us a spiritual truth - God's children are protected, even if we try to run away towards sin either our convicted hearts will turn us back or the army of God's love will chase us down: this spiritual truth gives us strength and assurance.
