"And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there."  Acts 20:22

Paul is following a path that he laid out, but expecting -- and watching -- for things of the spirit.   Some of what he might encounter will be unpleasant, or difficult.  Daily life is that way, also.  Christians, especially those who are truly walking in the "way", will encounter trials and tribulation.  These are the means by which faith is grown, tested and grown.  

Some of the worst accusations and opposition will likely come from "brothers" in Christ.  We should expect to defend (with scripture) and examples -- what the Lord is doing in our walk.  And we should expect to reason (as Paul does in Jerusalem) with others.  

Are we prepared to help others see truth and experience spiritual views?  Are we prepared to have our views corrected?!
