When Paul said farewell to the leaders of the Ephesian church, he reminded them of how he strove to live a life free of temptation and accusation so that he could present the Gospel freely. He exhorted them to be similarly vigilant so that they would be quick to recognize false believers and avoid the discord they can sow. Alistair Begg echoes Paul's encouragement that God’s continual presence, provision, and grace are our ultimate source of confidence.
25And now, behold, I know that none of you among whom I have gone about proclaiming the kingdom will see my face again.
