The Third Missionary Journey

The third missionary journey displays Paul at the height of his apostolic powers, fulfilling his calling as a guarantor of the church's gospel and its mission.

How shall we apply to ourselves the encouragement and challenge of the example of the divinely empowered, yet obediently suffering, apostle?
