The Tears of Paul

We're studying through some of the occurrences in Scripture where we see the
apostle Paul in tears.

Paul "warned with many tears."

"Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased
not to warn every one night and day with tears" (Acts 20:31).

In expression of his deep abiding interest in and love for their souls, Paul
warned his brethren "with tears." These Christians were in danger of enemies
from without and within. Paul told them that men would come in as "grievous
wolves" "not sparing the flock"--that's enemies from without. Then, he
writes "Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things,
to draw away disciples after them"--enemies from within.

How heartbreaking it must have been for Paul, who gave so much to spread the
message of Jesus, to see the church for which he labored be persecuted by
enemies from without and within.

I wonder, do we have the same heart for the church of Christ today? Do we
hurt when people speak evil of her? Does it bother us when folks try to
change her for the sake of conforming to the world around us? Does it break
our hearts when attitudes within the body of Christ are divisive and
splinter the church for which Jesus died?

Just something to think about.

I hope you have a most excellent day!
