Summary: Paul's whirlwind tour is almost done; he sends word ahead to the church at Ephesus so that they can meet him at the boat he's traveling on for a sermon during a layover. He reveals that the Spirit has been telling him he won't get to see these towns again, that only prison and persecution await him. But still he goes.
Response: [Already we get Jesus misquoted with "better to give than receive;" oh well] The last day or so has had at least two studies of mine talk of eventual sacrifice. It's safe to say that I've noticed. I hope God can reveal to me what I need to prune out of my life.
