Alex Kremer - 06-18-2023 // Flak Gets Heavy Over the Target; Acts20:1-16
A saying emerged among bombers during World War II, "the flak gets heavy over the target." In other words, the closer the bombers came to enemy territories and targets, the stronger the resistance. In many ways, this is the experience of a church that is faithful in proclaiming the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Following the riot in Ephesus, the church despaired due to the extreme, even violent, resistance to the Gospel. But Paul, showing his singular devotion to God and His people, made it his aim to encourage and build up the church.
Join us as we continue through the book of Acts as Paul makes preparations to go to Rome, ultimately through Jerusalem. May you be encouraged through Paul's example to the saints and through the wonderful truth of the Gospel.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. We pray you will be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
