ACTS 20:13-38

Pastor Rick Jackson

The Apostle Paul was one of the most solid Christians that ever lived, unlike those “carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive”. Paul, like John the Baptist, was no reed shaken with the wind. He was as solid as they come. But why can we not be as solid as Paul? Did God love Paul more than He loves us? Does God not have the power He had in Paul’s day? He is the same yesterday, today and forever. How then can we be a solid Christian? What characteristics do we need to develop, maintain and use for the glory of God?
