Paul covers a lot of important truths in his speech to the Ephesian elders in Acts 20:13-38. These include teaching on:

  • the grace of God (Acts 20:24, 32)

  • the kingdom of God (Acts 20:25)

  • the purpose or will of God (Acts 20:27)

  • repentance and faith (Acts 20:21)

  • the church of God and its protection and edification (Acts 20:28,32)

  • the inevitability of suffering (Acts 20:23-24)

  • the danger of false teaching (Acts 20:29-30)

  • the need for vigilance (Acts 20:28, 31)

  • life as a race (Acts 20:24)

  • our final inheritance (Acts 20:32)

Clearly, all these themes are important to us as Christians and we need to take on board all that God’s word teaches about these things. Why not dig deeper this week and use a search engine or concordance to find out what the rest of the Bible has to teach about these things? You could take one topic per day.
