Traveling with Paul (2)

One man who is mentioned several times as a person who traveled with Paul is Luke. Colossians 4:14 tells us that Luke was a doctor.
Luke also wrote the New Testament books of Luke and Acts. There are several sections in the book of Acts where Luke uses the pronoun “we.” This shows us that at those times Luke was traveling with Paul. Acts 16:10 says, “After Paul had seen the vision, we immediately prepared to leave for Macedonia. We understood that God called us to tell the Good News to those people.”
In our Bible Reading today, Paul wrote to Timothy. Paul wanted Timothy to come help him. In verse 11 Paul says, “Luke is the only one still with me.” This shows us that Luke was Paul’s good friend. Luke faithfully obeyed God and helped Paul tell people about Jesus.
You can be like Luke today. Encourage and help your Christian friends. And don’t forget to pray for them, too!
