The work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of His people is crucial to following, serving, and glorifying Christ. Paul and Silas found this to be true as they travelled throughout Galatia and across to Troas. The Holy Spirit provided new friends and workers in the form of Timothy and Luke. He provided wisdom in the circumcision of Timothy. And He provided direction through opening and closing doors that led them to receive and follow a vision to evangelize Europe. What we learn is that the Holy Spirit gives everything necessary to accomplish the Lord’s work as we seek Him.
