We see in the apostle Paul and his ministry companions great perseverance and courage in the face of opposition as they seek to proclaim the gospel. This same ministry of proclaiming the gospel is ours today. As we explore this text, there are several important things that we can discover, or be reminded of, when it comes to gospel ministry. Despite the challenges and despite opposition, sharing the good news is of utmost importance. Empowered by the Spirit of the living God, may we grow in boldness and dare to tell of his great love and his great grace!
