Being a Christian evangelist in the early years was a real adventure. By the
early years, I mean, the first 100 years of Christianity. It was a dangerous and violent time in many ways, and made much more so by the religious persecution that seemed to come from all sides. And then there was the travel.
We don’t think very much about travel these days. We can jump in the car and peel off 400 miles before sundown. Or we can get on an airliner in Dallas in the evening and walk off in London the next morning.
When the Apostle Paul decided to go somewhere it was not like that. For him, it was a real adventure. We find a good illustration of the difficulties he faced on his journeys beginning in Acts chapter 20.
