  • Disobedience can be either active or passive, but obedience only can be active.
  • Spiritual words are a foreign language to unsaved people. That is why God calls believers to be faithful, not successful! The success is only by the ministry and power of God the Holy Spirit.
  • Conclusion: Agrippa, and most unsaved people in our world, are thinking, “Are you going to persuade me to become a Christian so easily?” The fact is that it isn’t easy—it is physically and spiritually impossible apart from the ministry of God the Holy Spirit.y.

Bible Text

(19) “So, King Agrippa, I did not prove disobedient to the heavenly vision, (20) but kept declaring both to those of Damascus first, and also at Jerusalem and then throughout all the region of Judea, and even to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, performing deeds appropriate to repentance. (21) For this reason some Jews seized me in the temple and tried to put me to death. (22) So, having obtained help from God, I stand to this day testifying both to small and great, stating nothing but what the Prophets and Moses said was going to take place; (23) that the Christ was to suffer, and that by reason of His resurrection from the dead He would be the first to proclaim light both to the Jewish people and to the Gentiles.”

(24) While Paul was saying this in his defense, Festus said in a loud voice, “Paul, you are out of your mind! Your great learning is driving you mad.” (25) But Paul said, “I am not out of my mind, most excellent Festus, but I utter words of sober truth. (26) For the king knows about these matters, and I speak to him also with confidence, since I am persuaded that none of these things escape his notice; for this has not been done in a corner. (27) King Agrippa, do you believe the Prophets? I know that you do.” (28) Agrippa replied to Paul, “In a short time you will persuade me to become a Christian.” (29) And Paul said, “I would wish to God, that whether in a short or long time, not only you, but also all who hear me this day, might become such as I am, except for these chains.”

(30) The king stood up and the governor and Bernice, and those who were sitting with them, (31) and when they had gone aside, they began talking to one another, saying, “This man is not doing anything worthy of death or imprisonment.” (32) And Agrippa said to Festus, “This man might have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar.”
