…they urged Paul not to go… we and the people pleaded with Paul not to go… the brothers received us warmly… the people came running from all directiosn. Siezing Paul they dragged him from the temple and immediately the gates were shut.
Paul gave everything in the name of Jesus, even knowing the harm to come.
Our faithfulness comes from a love, trust, and sacrificial relationship with God. We are to be willing to fight for the cause of Christ even to our death.
Lord, I don’t want to have fear over Your will for my life. I want to say the truth freely without hesitation and without fear of what may come. Protect me, Lord. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
