Acts 21:1-6

After we had torn ourselves away from them, we put out to sea and sailed straight to Kos. The next day we went to Rhodes and from there to Patara. We found a ship crossing over to Phoenicia, went on board and set sail. After sighting Cyprus and passing to the south of it, we sailed on to Syria. We landed at Tyre, where our ship was to unload its cargo. We sought out the disciples there and stayed with them seven days. Through the Spirit they urged Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.When it was time to leave, we left and continued on our way. All of them, including wives and children, accompanied us out of the city, and there on the beach we knelt to pray. After saying goodbye to each other, we went aboard the ship, and they returned home.

One response to “Acts 21:1-6

  1. We share the human weaknesses that relate to sharing the gospel and making ourselves vulnerable. But we can transverse the globe in hours and reach the world without leaving our couches. This passage highlights the differences that Paul faced in travel and logistics and communication.

    Yet he reached and changed the world through obedience and selflessness. I don’t have nearly the impediments yet my heart and my obedience is what holds me back and keeps me from reaching those I am called to.
