Committed to Death

In Acts 21:1 - 14, Luke tells us about the end of Paul’s third missionary journey.  In the passage several prophets warn Paul not to go to Jerusalem.  They prophecy his arrest and imprisonment, even his death.
Committed to Death
Paul, seemingly could not have cared less.

He was committed to the path that the Lord had set for him.  Committed to the point of willingly going into a situation that may result in his death.  Somehow I do not think Paul, were he among us now, would be considered politically correct.  He was completely sold out to the message of the gospel, regardless of the implied or real danger to his person.

One wonders how to develop that level of commitment.  Being blinded by God on a road trip may have something to do with it.  Spending the first part of my relationship with God immersed in His Word may have contributed.  Being committed to studying His Word continually may contribute as well.

Most of us will not have the first experience.  Many of us are past the second.  All of us can engage in the third.
