22 The commander dismissed the young man and cautioned him, “Don’t tell anyone that you have reported this to me.”
23 Then he called two of his centurions and ordered them, “Get ready a detachment of two hundred soldiers, seventy horsemen and two hundred spearmen to go to Caesarea at nine tonight. 24 Provide mounts for Paul so that he may be taken safely to Governor Felix.”

Observation: Ironically the people who Paul once worked with are now violently against him. He needed something only God could fully provide – protection. The drama unfolds as Paul’s sister’s son (his nephew) boldly passes on a message to the Roman leaders. And Paul’s plan to witness to leaders and make it all the way to Rome continues to unfold.
Action: Lord, may I not be lazy of mind or body. May I live in this Easter season with the passion of Paul, the boldness of his nephew, and the protection of Your presence. My plan for this day as we embark on Lent is to commit to bold moves of interaction with people around me to celebrate your love for all people.
