The Story: Chapter 29
TIRED yet COMMITTED
1 Corinthians 4:2
1 Corinthians 4:2 NKJV
Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.
2 Corinthians 11:23-27
2 Corinthians 11:23-27 NKJV
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—
Acts 14:20 NKJV
However, when the disciples gathered around him, he rose up and went into the city. And the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.
OPPOSED yet JOYFUL
Acts 13:44-45, 50-52
Acts 13:44-45, Acts 13:50-52 NKJV
On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God. But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they opposed the things spoken by Paul. But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, raised up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region. But they shook off the dust from their feet against them, and came to Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
1 Thessalonians 5:16
1 Thessalonians 5:16 NKJV
Philippians 1:4 NKJV
always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy,
Acts 16:22-25 NKJV
Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods. And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely. Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
Acts 20-23, 27-28; Ephesians 1-6, 2 Timothy 1-4
