“Save that the Holy Ghost witnesseth in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me.” Acts 20:23
I wonder how many of us would decide to quit our walk with the Lord if we were told that the only thing we can be sure awaits us in the coming days is bonds and afflictions. Paul stayed faithful, even though he knew what lay in store for him. The secret to his victory is found in the next verse. He did not find his life dear to him.
