And now, behold, I am going to Jerusalem, constrained by the Spirit, not knowing what will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies to me in every city that imprisonment and afflictions await me. But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
– Acts 20:22-24
WOW. OH MY GOODNESS.
Your word is LIFE. I do not account my life of any value other than as opportunity to testify to the gospel of God’s grace.
I am constrained by the Spirit….where real freedom is.
I don’t know what will happen to me! Hallelujah.
What I do know: Imprisonment & Afflictions. Bother me? Nahhhhh. Whatev. I have so much more!
As M said this morning, Paul is so spicy.
Praying for this to be my heart. The more I cling to my real life, the looser I can hold this life.
