Philippi: Annoyances and Uproars

Acts 16: 16-40

Have you ever been so annoyed with something you decided to do something about it? You see something in your life or the world around you and you decide to act because you just can’t live with how it is any longer. Even if it won’t accomplish much, you simply have to do something or you can’t go on.

And yet, those small moments of annoyances have the potential to bring change. The potential of Christ’s love to be seen.

That’s kinda what happens with Paul in this pasage. And it is though this an uproar is caused, systemic power plays are exposed, and the possibility of change is revealed.
