23 Nov Acts 21:12-13

12 …we as well as the local residents began begging him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, “What are you doing, weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not only to be bound, but even to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”   

Paul is looking at being arrested when he gets to Jerusalem and possibly beaten, or worse. Do you think he was complaining? NO WAY! Look at his answer – not only is he okay with being bound but even dying for the name of the Lord! Paul was once a man dedicated to defeating Christianity and now he was ready to give his own life to defend it. Pray that you will have a brave, bold heart for telling others about Jesus.
