Change is inevitable which is why our faith in an unchanging God is so steadying.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Acts 18: 21 As he left, however, he said, "I will come back later, God willing." Then he set sail from Ephesus.
Read - Acts 18:19-28
Paul started many new things and each time he did he had to say goodbye to something he had already been a part of and was likely heavily invested in…transition is hard especially when it involves separation of close relationships. Having a long view of eternity as a Christ-follower can help us endure temporary change and separation here on earth.
Lord, I will remind steadfast in you even when things change around me.
God has uniquely gifted each of us as part of His Body and when He saves us He begins showing us how-so. Paul was a gifted starter of churches. Apollos would become a gifted apologist. Later, Paul would explain (in 1 Corinthians) that some plant, some water but God gets the increase. As He Morph’s you by His Spirit let Him shape you into the part of the Body of Christ that He has created you to be.
