The Lord’s will be done (Acts 21:14)

“Since he would not be persuaded,

We remained silent,

Except to say.

‘The Lord’s will be done.’”

μὴ πειθομένου δὲ αὐτοῦ ἡσυχάσαμεν εἰπόντες Τοῦ Κυρίου τὸ θέλημα γινέσθω.

The author of Acts indicated that since they could not persuade Paul (μὴ πειθομένου δὲ αὐτοῦ), they remained silent (ἡσυχάσαμεν), only to say (εἰπόντες) that the Lord’s will be done (Τοῦ Κυρίου τὸ θέλημα γινέσθω).  The companions of Paul, including the author of Acts, could not persuade Paul not to go to Jerusalem.  Thus, they were silent, only saying that God’s will should be done.  No one could talk Paul out of going to Jerusalem, not even a prophet uttering the words of the Holy Spirit.  Paul was determined to go to Jerusalem, no matter what.  How determined are you about your life?
