"But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish the race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God." - Acts 20:24 "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith." - 2 Timothy 4:7 Apostle Paul had a great testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ and the gospel. Even in the midst of all his trials and tribulations, he endured and remained faithful until he became a martyr for Christ. The first words he would have heard from our Lord is " Well Done thou good and faithful servant". What an incredible way to end his life on earth and begin eternity with Christ! For us, Apostle Paul is a great example of faithfulness. No matter the trials we face, let's pray for God's grace and remain faithful to Him and finish the race with joy and perseverance. Praise the Lord!
