Acts 20:27

27 for I didn’t shrink from declaring all that God wants you to know.

Acts 20:27 Meaning and Commentary

Acts 20:27

For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel
of God.
] By which is meant, not the purposes and decrees of God, latent in his own breast, these the apostle could not declare; but his revealed will in the Gospel, concerning the salvation of men by Jesus Christ, even the whole of the Gospel, every truth and doctrine of it, necessary to salvation, and to the peace, joy, and comfort of the saints; together with all the ordinances of it, and everything that had any tendency to promote the glory of God, and the good of souls; see ( Luke 7:30 ) none of these things did the apostle withhold from the knowledge of the church at Ephesus, but freely imparted and communicated them to them; (See Gill on Acts 20:20).

Acts 20:27 In-Context

25 “And now I know that none of you to whom I have preached the Kingdom will ever see me again.
26 I declare today that I have been faithful. If anyone suffers eternal death, it’s not my fault,
27 for I didn’t shrink from declaring all that God wants you to know.
28 “So guard yourselves and God’s people. Feed and shepherd God’s flock—his church, purchased with his own blood —over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as elders.
29 I know that false teachers, like vicious wolves, will come in among you after I leave, not sparing the flock.
