Read: Acts 24-26
Marked: Acts 26:25, But he said, “I am not mad, most noble Festus, but speak the words of truth and reason.”
Paul gives his testimony, his story of how he came to know Jesus as Saviour, before Agrippa and Festus.
To Festus, Paul’s words sounded like the ramblings of a mad man. But Paul knew his story was true; he had lived it.
The gospel, the Good News, might seem to some madness, but if they would look into the truth of the matter, they would find the story of salvation in Christ to be not only true but reasonable.
The gospel is both truth and reason. To reject the gospel is to put away reason and reject the truth.
