THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

CHAPTER 20


          Hello again, and welcome back to Daily Bread. Well, as youíve seen so far, Luke seems to be focusing his writing of the Acts of the Apostles ... On Paul. In reading about his endeavors to spread the Word of the Lord, youíve gotten to know that there were many highs and lows, elations and disappointments, anticipation, dread, joy and sorrow on the path Paul was called for and chose to follow.

PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS

PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS STUDY ON PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS CONTENTS WITH PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS MESSAGE

          When we ended our study last time, some of the Ephesians were upset with Paul because he converted many people there, and in doing so, he affected the income of the craftsmen who fabricated idols. A crowd gathered at the theatre to speak against Paul, and naturally, Paul wanted to go there to spread the Gospel. What better audience could he get, right? Many people who held Paul dear to their hearts, however, knew that this could endanger his life, so they dissuaded him from going there.

          When the crowd dispersed, Paul called the disciples and bid them farewell, then he was off to Macedonia. When he had revisited the churches he created there, and encouraged them in their faith, he went to Greece. Hereís a little Daily Bread Crumb. Now wait a minute, youíre thinking. I thought you said that Macedonia is Greece. Actually, I did say that. Macedonia is what is now modern day Greece. But in those times, the northern part of what is now Greece, was called Macedonia, the central region was called Achaia, and the southern peninsula was then the only area that was called Greece.

PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS LESSON WITH PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS EXPLANATION

          Paul stayed there for three months and then as he was about to sail into Syria, the Jewish people planned to attack him, so he changed plans to return through Macedonia. Going with him into Asia were:

From Berea - Sopater

From Thessalonica - Aristarchus and Secundus

From Derbe - Gaius and Timotheus

From Asia - Tychicus and Trophimus

          And they went ahead of Paul and Luke and waited for them in Troas. They sailed from Philippi after the feast of unleavened bread, and met the others in Troas in five days, then they stayed there for seven days.

          On the first day of the week, when the disciples gathered together to break bread, Paul preached to them, ready to leave the next day, and he talked until midnight. There were many lights in the upper room where they were meeting. Now, Paul was long winded, and there was a certain young man named Eutychus, sitting in a window on the third floor, who fell into a deep sleep while Paul spoke. He fell out of the window, and was taken up dead.

          Paul went down, and fell upon the lad and embracing the man said to those around him ... Donít worry, heís still alive. The man was dead ... but was restored life by the Lord working through Paul!

          After celebrating such a blessing, the group sailed to Assos, intending to take Paul on board there, because he had arranged for himself to go that far on foot. From Assos, they sailed along the coast, stopping in several places until they came to Miletus. Paul wanted to pass by Ephesus, because he didnít want to spend the time in Asia. He was in a hurry to try and be back in Jerusalem for the day of Pentecost (the day the Holy Spirit introduced Himself to the 120 in the upper room).

          From Miletus, he sent message to Ephesus, calling for the elders of the church and when they came to him, he said:

You know, from the first day that I arrived in Asia, how Iíve been with you at all seasons, serving the Lord with all humility of mind, and with many tears and temptations, that happened to me by the persecution of the Jewish people. I kept back nothing that could benefit you, but have showed you, and have taught you publicly, and in your homes, testifying both to the Jewish people and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. And now, Iím determined to go to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there. But the Holy Ghost witnesses in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions await me. But none of these things affect me, neither do I count my life dear to myself, so that I might finish my mission with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the Gospel of the Grace of God. And now, I know that you all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. I tell you today for the record, that I have a good conscience. I have not hesitated to declare to you all the advice of God. Take care of yourselves, and of all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost has made you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which He has purchased with His own blood. For I know this, that after my departing grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also among your own selves shall men arise, speaking contrary things, to draw away disciples after them. (Such is the division of the Church) Therefore watch, and remember, that over the last three years I never stopped warning every one, night and day, with tears. And now, brethren, I commend you to God (put you in Godís hands), and to the word of his Grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified (set apart). I have asked for no man's silver, or gold, or clothing. Yes, you yourselves know, that these hands have ministered to my own needs, and to them that were with me. I have taught you all things, how that working you ought to support the weak, and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.

          And when he had finished, he kneeled down, and prayed with them all. And they all wept freely, and fell on Paul's neck, and kissed him, sorrowing most of all because he said that they would see his face no more. And they accompanied him to the ship.

PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS INFORMATION WITH PAUL LETTER TO EPHESIANS MEANING

          I donít know about you, but Iím all choked up myself, imagining those people and how they longed for Paulís visits and to sit and listen to that spiritual giant talk with such fervor about the Lord and His Grace, and about all the heart touching things that motivated the early Christians to walk the walk. What was that he said about bonds and afflictions awaiting him? We think that in our time, itís far more difficult of a world to be a Christian in, but friends, those people back then had their share of tough times too. So many in fact, that God chose that time to send Jesus to save them, because things were so bleak. Heís coming again soon, can you just feel it? Oh, one more thing. The Pauls of our time deserve the same kind of gratitude that the saints of Biblical times did. Donít forget to keep them in your prayers. Catch you again soon as we complete Paulís third journey and find out what the future holds for him next, right here at Daily Bread.
