Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:10 NRSV
Therefor I, the prisoner of the Lord… Ephesians 4:1 NASB
The apostle Paul was an amazing fellow. Having bowed his knee to the one true King who reigns over all (Psalm 103:19), he viewed everything in his life as being orchestrated by the Lord. Therefore, instead of fretting and stewing over the fact that he was incarcerated and unable to roam about freely, he simply considered himself to be the Lord’s prisoner and resigned himself to His will. We need to examine this attitude closely because we will see something that is crucial to living in the Reign of God.
