Author David Olford explains, "In studying this text we are going to be looking at three lasting legacies of utmost value that this faithful leader left to the church. These are legacies that we as leaders today would do well to leave behind. We will see that Paul first left a personal example behind at Ephesus. Secondly, he left a preached word. And then the third legacy was a prepared leadership."
Church leaders from all backgrounds will indeed find ongoing inspiration in this fresh and succinct exposition.
