Read Acts 21:1-16

Have you ever given up on anything? What was it? Why did you do it?

How do you know when something is not worth the effort?

What was Paul’s goal in this passage? What goal do Christians living in 2023 share with Paul?

What was the response of the believers to the prophecy given by Agabus? Why do you think they responded that way?

What are some examples of reasons that encourage us to take our eyes off of the goal that Christ has set before us?

What was Paul’s response to the objections of his fellow believers? What effect did it have on them?

What does his response say to us when we are tempted to consider tapping out?

Read Philippians 3:17-21

How can you keep your eyes on the prize and press on toward the upward call of God in Christ Jesus?

Read Acts 21:17-26 for next week.
