Paul's Passion and Courage

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 afflictions 
await me. 
BUT, I do not count 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 Christ, to testify to the gospel of the
grace of God.  Acts 20:22-24
Papa, Paul’s courage and trust in you amazes
me. I do not see it in my life or in the life of the
church here in America. He challenges me to be 
faithful to that which you have called me and 
to testify to the truth: 
Christ in me, the hope of glory.
