  • 1 And when we had parted from them and set sail, we came by a straight course to Cos, and the next day to Rhodes, and from there to Patara.
    2 And having found a ship crossing to Phoenicia, we went aboard and set sail.
    3 When we had come in sight of Cyprus, leaving it on the left we sailed to Syria and landed at Tyre, for there the ship was to unload its cargo.
    4 And having sought out the disciples, we stayed there for seven days. And through the Spirit they were telling Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.
    5 When our days there were ended, we departed and went on our journey, and they all, with wives and children, accompanied us until we were outside the city. And kneeling down on the beach, we prayed
    6 and said farewell to one another. Then we went on board the ship, and they returned home.
    7 When we had finished the voyage from Tyre, we arrived at Ptolemais, and we greeted the brothers and stayed with them for one day.
    8 On the next day we departed and came to Caesarea, and we entered the house of Philip the evangelist, who was one of the seven, and stayed with him.
    9 He had four unmarried daughters, who prophesied.
    10 While we were staying for many days, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea.
    11 And coming to us, he took Paul's belt and bound his own feet and hands and said, "Thus says the Holy Spirit, 'This is how the Jews at Jerusalem will bind the man who owns this belt and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.'"
    12 When we heard this, we and the people there urged him not to go up to Jerusalem.
    13 Then Paul answered, "What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be imprisoned but even to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus."
    14 And since he would not be persuaded, we ceased and said, "Let the will of the Lord be done."
    15 After these days we got ready and went up to Jerusalem.
    16 And some of the disciples from Caesarea went with us, bringing us to the house of Mnason of Cyprus, an early disciple, with whom we should lodge.

Thinking & Understanding
Paul and his company stayed at Tyre and Caesarea briefly on their way to Jerusalem. Although the disciples tried to stop Paul because of the hardships he would face in Jerusalem, he still headed toward Jerusalem (vv. 1-6). Paul and his company went down to Caesarea and stayed in the house of Philip the evangelist. While he was there, the prophet Agabus came and prophesied that Paul would be arrested in Jerusalem. When the disciples heard this, they tried to stop Paul once again, but Paul said that he was prepared to die for the name of Jesus. So, the disciples quit trying to stop Paul and left him to the will of the Lord (vv. 7-16).

What lesson is God teaching me?
Vv. 4-5, 10-15 Paul went up to Jerusalem boldly, despite the hardships, because the Lord was going to be with him. This is the will of the Lord (see John 16:33): Jesus also went up to Jerusalem, where suffering and death waited for him boldly, without an inch of compromise. Is there a command that you must obey no matter how much people worry and try to stop you?

Vv. 5, 14, 16 When the disciples saw that Paul was prepared to die for the Lord, they did not insist on holding on to him, but encouraged him and prayed for him. Some disciples of Caesarea even accompanied him to Jerusalem where hardships awaited them. How do you accompany your companions who are walking in the path of suffering for the name of the Lord?

Prayer
Lord, give me great faith and courage so I can endure suffering for the gospel.
