When Paul got to Rome he was allowed to be put under "house arrest". He was permitted to live by himself with a soldier to guard him.
After three days he called together the Jewish leaders of the city and told them his story. They were glad for an opportunity to talk with him. They had heard people talking about this new religion, and they wanted to learn more about it.
They made arrangements to meet again, and even more people came to the house. Paul talked to them all day long, from morning to evening. He told them about Jesus. He tried to show them that Jesus was the One about whom the prophets had written. Some of the people were convinced, but others would not believe his words.
Paul was able to preach for two whole years from his rented house. Secular history (not the Bible) tells us that Paul was beheaded around AD 67.
If you visit Rome today you can see the remains of the Colosseum which was completed in 80 A.D. (which would probably be after the death of Paul).

What does this story
mean to me?
It would seem that Paul was at a disadvantage in Rome because of his imprisonment. He could not go to different places to preach, but was confined to the house. Some might see it as a handicap.
Are you handicapped in some way? Are you not able to move about or speak as other people can? Do you have difficulty learning? God can use you in any circumstance. Sometimes God's strength is shown in our weakness. Do everything you can to overcome the handicap, then accept it and let God work through you.
May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us; may your ways be known on the earth, your salvation among all nations.
Psalm 67:1-2 NIV
