As Paul continues his missionary journey, we see once again his dedication to the Gospel and that he does not let any obstacle divert him from that goal. As God closes some doors for Paul’s ministry, He opens others. We see:
- The importance of pressing forward and persevering in the work.
- The importance of others in this work, helping us to press forward by the use of mutual encouragement.
- The importance of being exhorted to press forward by others.
