Bible: Acts 20:17-28
20:18 When they arrived, he said to them, “You yourselves know how I lived 4 the whole time I was with you, from the first day I set foot 5 in the province of Asia, 6 20:19 serving the Lord with all humility 7 and with tears, and with the trials that happened to me because of the plots 8 of the Jews. 20:20 You know that I did not hold back from proclaiming 9 to you anything that would be helpful, 10 and from teaching you publicly 11 and from house to house, 20:21 testifying 12 to both Jews and Greeks about repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus. 13 20:22 And now, 14 compelled 15 by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem 16 without knowing what will happen to me there, 17 20:23 except 18 that the Holy Spirit warns 19 me in town after town 20 that 21 imprisonment 22 and persecutions 23 are waiting for me. 20:24 But I do not consider my life 24 worth anything 25 to myself, so that 26 I may finish my task 27 and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news 28 of God’s grace.
20:25 “And now 29 I know that none 30 of you among whom I went around proclaiming the kingdom 31 will see me 32 again. 20:26 Therefore I declare 33 to you today that I am innocent 34 of the blood of you all. 35 20:27 For I did not hold back from 36 announcing 37 to you the whole purpose 38 of God. 20:28 Watch out for 39 yourselves and for all the flock of which 40 the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, 41 to shepherd the church of God 42 that he obtained 43 with the blood of his own Son. 44
