Acts 20:1-6

When the uproar had ended, Paul sent for the disciples and, after encouraging them, said goodbye and set out for Macedonia. He traveled through that area, speaking many words of encouragement to the people, and finally arrived in Greece, where he stayed three months. Because some Jews had plotted against him just as he was about to sail for Syria, he decided to go back through Macedonia. He was accompanied by Sopater son of Pyrrhus from Berea, Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica, Gaius from Derbe, Timothy also, and Tychicus and Trophimus from the province of Asia. These men went on ahead and waited for us at Troas. But we sailed from Philippi after the Festival of Unleavened Bread, and five days later joined the others at Troas, where we stayed seven days.

One response to “Acts 20:1-6

  1. Witnessing was hard. Not because of their own inhibitions, but because of the opposition they faced and the danger they were in. And Paul still disregarded all this and shared the gospel across the continent.

    I don’t face physical peril or opposition more than rejection. Yet I struggle so much because I value myself and my image more than people’s need for Christ and the commission I have been given by God.
