Acts 20:13-16

13 But going ahead to the ship, we set sail for Assos, intending to take Paul aboard there, for so he had arranged, intending himself to go by land. 14 And when he met us at Assos, we took him on board and went to Mitylene. 15 And sailing from there we came the following day opposite Chios; the next day we touched at Samos; and[b] the day after that we went to Miletus. 16 For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, so that he might not have to spend time in Asia, for he was hastening to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the day of Pentecost.

One response to “Acts 20:13-16

  1. I think that Paul wanted to be at Pentecost to be refreshed and to see what God was doing in the Way. Even as a minister, and a miracle worker, he still needed recharged and to be filled by watching the power of God move among his people. All of us are humans and can burn out. We have to make sure that we are being discipled and fed and not neglect our own humanity.
