Imagine this statement being said at your funeral?
Imagine this being our testimony! “I kept back nothing”! Paul is bidding farewell to his friends and the elders at the church of Ephesus. The Bible is clear in Acts 20:25 and in verse 38 that they all knew it was their last time seeing each other. I began to think how great it is that God kept back nothing for us!
Paul's testimony was one that he KEPT NOTHING BACK.
Psalms 84:11 For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
1. He kept back nothing in Creation
Colossians 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
2. He kept back nothing in Revelation
II Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
3. He kept back nothing in Salvation
2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Paul’s testimony was one that he KEPT NOTHING BACK.
