Restful and mastered by Christ, Paul was yet restless and resistless in devotion to the enterprise of his Lord. These facts are evident throughout this chapter. We follow him in rapid movements, always calm and confident. After tarrying in Greece for three months, he found that a plot was laid against his life and quickly passed overland. Detained in Troas, he ministered to the saints and strengthened their hearts.
It was while here that Eutychus, overcome with sleep, fell to death, from which Paul raised him.
In taking farewell of the elders of Ephesus the apostle delivered an address characterized by great clarity and beauty. Reviewing his own work, he made no apology. His care for the flock was tenderly expressed. As for himself he was going to Jerusalem bound in spirit, and was certain that suffering awaited him. Yet there was no shrinking. Life itself was not dear to him, his only passion being the fulfilment of his ministry for Christ.
