Speaking to hostile crowds; escaping a death plot; testifying to Jewish and Roman rulers; surviving a shipwreck; ministering while under house arrest and chained to a guard. How did Paul keep going, and what life-lessons do we learn from his experiences? Persevering in the Power of the Spirit is a careful look at Acts 21—28 as well as an overview of Paul's letters to the churches and people we've met in Acts. You will be challenged to persevere in your own Christian life and ministry.
