Acts 20:22-23 ” And now, compelled by the Spirit; I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.”

Sometimes fulfilling the Ministry we’ve been called to is fraught with difficulties and affliction. But the Holy Spirit continues to drive us forward…bearing witness that although we may be suffering for a bit now, we are ultimately fulfilling the Plan and Purpose of God. For Paul, God spoke of this suffering just after Paul’s conversion on the road to Damascus when He told Ananias to go pray for him. Speaking into the future, God said, “I will show him how much he must suffer for My Name.” (Acts 9:16) Suffering for the Lord’s Name is the highest calling of any Ministry and anyone who does is counted worthy of the Gospel.
