Paul's appeal

Acts 25

v11

For if I be an offender, or have committed any thing worthy of death, I refuse not to die: but if there be none of these things whereof these accuse me, no man may deliver me unto them. I appeal unto Caesar.

Paul boldly asserted his right to appeal to a higher authority for justice, when it appeared like doing so would further the Lord's purpose. And, when Paul was dragged in front of high authorities with accusations against him, he took those opportunities to preach the gospel to them. We should look for the Lord's purposes in our situations.
