Willing to die for faith in Christ

Scripture reference

Acts 20:22–24 (ASV 1901)

22And now, behold, I go bound in the spirit unto Jerusalem, not knowing the things that shall befall me there: 23save that the Holy Spirit testifieth unto me in every city, saying that bonds and afflictions abide me. 24But I hold not my life of any account as dear unto myself, so that I may accomplish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
