How do you say goodbye to someone you know you won’t ever see again – at least this side of Heaven? That is a question the Apostle Paul wrestled with as he gave his final speech to the Ephesian Elders (recorded in Acts 20). It’s a stunning and moving speech, filled with emotion and conviction. And in it, he shares a metaphor for life that is among the most helpful, challenging, and inspiring metaphors offered in the biblical story for how to live life well. In this teaching, we explore this metaphor and how it enables followers of Jesus to live with greater purpose, passion, and perseverance!
