We often speak of Paul’s missionary journeys. My Bible has a map in the back of it that highlights the missionary journeys of Paul. But here in Acts 25 we read of the most amazing missionary journey of all. From Felix (like a county commissioner), to Festus, the governor, to Agrippa the king, and then on to the highest authority in the land – Caesar himself. Would Paul have had access to these people and places any other way? Most likely not. God had a plan. Paul’s suffering was not in vain.
