(Acts 21:15-40) – God uses persecution to create platforms.
For Paul, his persecution moved him into stategic locations to share the Gospel with others. It probably wasn't the easiest path to take to get there, but there's no doubt that God was leading him.
So God can make great opportunities come out of bad situations.
Not only did God give him a platform, but He had prepared Paul uniquely for His plan.
Being who he was ethnically and socially gave him the tools he needed to be effective everywhere he went.
He didn't force people to adapt to him, he did what was best to adapt to his surroundings. Not compromise, lovingly being all-things to all people.
This maximized his service to the Lord, and it will for us too if we do the same.
