My family and I recently read through the book of Acts chapter 20. This chapter talks about Paul’s third missionary journey. The chapter continues after Paul left Ephesus. He was almost killed by a mob there which was gathered together by an evil man named Demetrius- a silversmith who made idols.
In chapter 20, Paul leaves Ephesus and goes to Macedonia. This is what caught our attention in the chapter: a ministry team. Verses 4-5 of this chapter tell us about the team members.
Generally, we tend to think that Paul traveled mostly on his own and did ministry on his own. But actually, the apostle had a whole team of fellow ministers with him. So my family and I decided to do a background check on these people 🙂 We found out some interesting facts about them.
Paul had a great team with him of faithful, godly people. They helped him in different ways.
Some went to prison with him. Others delivered Paul’s letters and messages to different churches.
Others, (like Luke) kept a kind of journal of their mission trips and wrote the book of Acts.
I’m sure they prayed with him, encouraged him, and evangelized together with him. Their team was one great team!
So my dear readers, I decided to make something special for you! Something about this team.
