Just when you think you’ve got ministry figured-out, God changes things up on you.
On his second missionary journey the Holy Spirit directed Paul away from Asia because God wanted him to spend most of his time in Europe.
On his third missionary journey most of Paul’s time was spent in Asia, in the city of Ephesus.
That wasn’t the only change. What scholars call the “third missionary journey” is more like an interim pastorate than a pioneering missions effort. (Pastor Gene Pensiero)
