Morning Everyone:

The Apostle Paul set sail to Ephesus because he wanted to spend some time at Asia, while hurrying to Jerusalem, so he could be there for the day of Pentecost(Acts 20:16). Now, during the time Paul was in Miletus and he sent a message to Ephesus, calling for the elders of the Church(Acts 20:17). Paul began to reminisce with the elders about the 1st. time he set foot in Asia(Acts 20:18). Occasionally, when someone is about to share a heartfelt story or farewell(like Paul) was about to do, a person chats about the good and bad times they experienced together ...

All in all, the Apostle Paul served the Lord with humility and he underwent trials and tribulations, too, because the Jews were always plotting against him(Acts 20:19). That's why, we as a Body of Christ can't ever turn our backs on the only one who dies on the Cross for us(Mark 15:25). Perchance, your under attack at home, work or even during summer school; however if you study the bible, you'll see that Paul wasn't the only one who's been through trying times, especially on account of him spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ(Matthew 28:19). Yes, your going to suffer, siblings and friends may turn their backs on you, however you shouldn't be surprised(1 Peter 4:12) because your telling the world about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and the devil's angry. So be careful because the knows that if you continue to serve the Lord, the blessings that are going to follow you are endless and that's why he'll attempt to send traps your way(1 Peter 5:8) ...

Blessings from Jesus Christ,
