  1. The Unhindered Gospel (Acts 28:11-31)

  2. When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas, also the books, and above all the parchments. 2 Timothy 4:13

  3. Let goods and kindred go, This mortal life also. The body they may kill; God’s truth abideth still; His kingdom is forever! (A Mighty Fortress – Luther)

  4. Unhindered by Geographical Boundaries • Unhindered by Religion • Unhindered by Racial Prejudice • Unhindered by Human Bondage The Unhindered Gospel

  5. Unhindered by Geographical Boundaries The Unhindered Gospel

  6. The common events of travelling are seldom worthy of being told; but the comfort of communion with the saints, and kindness shown by friends, deserve particular mention. The Christians at Rome were so far from being ashamed of Paul, or afraid of owning him, because he was a prisoner, that they were the more careful to show him respect. He had great comfort in this. And if our friends are kind to us, God puts it into their hearts, and we must give him the glory. Matthew Henry

  7. …the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and of which I, Paul, became a minister. Colossians 1:23

  8. Unhindered by Geographical Boundaries • Unhindered by Religion The Unhindered Gospel

  9. The same fire that melts wax hardens clay. Hughes

  10. When they heard these things they fell silent. And they glorified God, saying, “Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life.” Acts 11:18

  11. Unhindered by Geographical Boundaries • Unhindered by Religion • Unhindered by Racial Prejudice The Unhindered Gospel

  12. …in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. Genesis 12:3

  13. And I will pour out on the house of David…a spirit of grace… so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child Zechariah 12:10

  14. Unhindered by Geographical Boundaries • Unhindered by Religion • Unhindered by Racial Prejudice • Unhindered by Human Bondage The Unhindered Gospel

  15. Paul’s room became a fulcrum from which he moved the world. James Stalker

  16. I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel, 13 so that it has become known throughout the whole imperial guard and to all the rest that my imprisonment is for Christ. Philippians 1:12-13

  17. I am suffering, bound with chains as a criminal. But the word of God is not bound! 2 Timothy 2:9

  18. Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 2 Timothy 2:10

  19. …all that Jesus began to do and teach, 2 until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. Acts 1:1-2

  20. …you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Acts 1:8

  21. Luke has reached the objective of his history by bringing Paul to Rome, where (albeit in custody) he enjoys complete liberty to preach the gospel, under the eyes of the imperial guard. The program mapped out in 1:8 has been carried through. --FF Bruce

  22. But at the point where Luke laid down his pen, Paul – though in chains – and the gospel of God’s kingly rule were irrepressibly surging ahead without let up or hindrance in spite of human opposition or nature’s storms. --David Gooding

  23. Am I a soldier of the cross, a foll’wer of the Lamb, And shall I fear to own His cause, or blush to speak His name? Must I be carried to the skies on flowery beds of ease, While others fought to win the prize, and sailed thro’ bloody seas?

  24. Are there no foes for me to face? Must I not stem the flood? Is this vile world a friend to grace, to help me on to God? Sure I must fight if I would reign; increase my courage, Lord; I will bear the toil, endure the pain, supported by Thy Word.
