Acts 27:42 - 44

"The soldiers planned to kill the prisoners to prevent any of them from swimming away and escaping. But the centurion wanted to spare Paul's life and kept them from carrying out their plan. He ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and get to land. The rest were to get there on planks or on pieces of the ship. In this way everyone reached land in safety." NIV translation 

Now, we see an unscheduled stop on Paul's mission trip but we also see God's favor on him.

The soldiers wanted to kill all of them so they would not escape but God caused the centurion to show mercy to Paul and through that all of the others were saved as well.

If we are in Christ, then, God's favor is on us as well. Like those who were with Paul, those around us can witness that favor in action and that provides us with an opportunity to tell them about God.
