In today's reading we see some of the church's early prison ministry, in this case, ministry as prisoners. One thing I love about this passage is that Paul insists on his rights as a citizen. It's interesting to watch the different ways Paul uses his citizenship in ministry. The gospel is disruptive because it breaks into the world and calls us to a new way of life based on love. That interruption is not always welcome. May the faithfulness of the apostles inspire us to be faithful today, however we have opportunities to minister.
