WHEN SHIPWRECK HAPPENS

Acts 27:42-44
And the soldiers’ plan was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim away and escape. But the centurion, wanting to save Paul, kept them from their purpose, and commanded that those who could swim should jump overboard first and get to land, and the rest, some on boards and some on parts of the ship. And so it was that they all escaped safely to land.

OUR WORLD IS BEING SHIPWRECKED
Millions of people have lost their jobs. Tens of thousands have been infected with a deadly virus. Life as we knew it has now been radically changed.

HOW TO SURVIVE SHIPWRECK
The Bible always has the answers to the great questions of life.
The scriptures in Acts 27 give us keys as to how the godly act in a real shipwreck.

STAY STRONG
Don’t fight the wind – go with it.
Find some nourishment, eat & stay strong.

SPEAK PEACE
Paul spoke peace to the soldiers and promised them that his God would save them.

SWIM HARD
Your ship may be broken up but your God isn’t. Sometimes you just have to swim for your life.

STAND UP
When you reach solid ground – stand up. Don’t lie on the beach in self pity.

SEEK ASSISTANCE
Paul had landed on the island of Malta. They sought the assistance of the natives and were helped.

SHAKE OFF THE SNAKE
Paul was helping to light a fire and a deadly snake bit him and clung on. He shook the snake off and went about his business.
Don’t let enemy attacks stop you from believing for God’s best.

SERVE OTHERS
The whole shipwreck saga was to get the Apostle Paul to the island of Malta to minister healing to their dying leader.
Thus the gospel invaded Malta through a shipwreck.
