To what extent are you willing to go for the salvation of a lost person? Whatever it cost you, Paul was thoroughly convinced that it was worth the sacrifice for the reward awaiting him in glory.
”But none of these things (bonds and afflictions in v23) move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more. Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men.”

He was ready to hear “Job well done!” We are not called to win everyone to Christ, but to make everyone within our reach accountable for hearing the Gospel. Paul felt accomplished. Do you?
