Steady Forward

Today's reading: Acts 20:17-38

Paul delivers a loving but heavy farewell message and caution to the elders at Ephesus. Although he has already experienced much hardship and persecution, Paul knows that the road ahead of him is going to be even more difficult, and that he will not be returning to meet with the believers in Ephesus again. Yet despite knowing that imprisonment and afflictions will be in his future, he remains steadfast, focused and diligent to perform the task God had put before him of spreading the message of Christ to Jews and Gentiles far and wide.

What did you see and learn from this account about priorities, trusting God, serving in and through difficult circumstances, relationships? What stood out to you the most from Paul's conversation with the elders at Ephesus, and why? Tami
