Daily Devotional
April 23
 
And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.
Acts 18:26
 
Realizing Apollos didn’t have the full story, Aquila and Priscilla took him aside. They didn’t interrupt the service, but they privately shared with him the message of the Gospel.

I love Aquila and Priscilla for being there with hearts to serve in humility. And I love Apollos for being teachable. After all, he could have said, ‘Who are you, you tentmakers? I am a man mighty in the Scriptures, eloquent of speech, fervent of spirit — read Acts 18 if you don’t believe me.’ But that wasn’t his heart. Apollos shared what he had and the Lord sent Aquila and Priscilla to give him more.

How can you know more about the way and heart of the Lord?
Share what you already know.

I read about an Army paratrooper who recently completed his two thousandth jump. Asked by one of his students why he got into parachuting, he answered, ‘I was an infantryman fifteen thousand feet in the air when the third engine on our plane went out. I jumped because I had no other choice.’

When do you become a teacher, a Bible student, an evangelist? When you take the jump, knowing you are the person on your street, in your office, or at your school who knows more about the Kingdom than does the person next to you.

God will give you opportunity to minister tomorrow if you choose to take it because I guarantee you will find yourself next to someone who is dumber than you concerning the things of the Lord. And when He does, you can either say, ‘I’m not a pastor. I don’t have a lot of knowledge theologically. I don’t know that much about the Bible, so I won’t say anything,’ — or you can be a Priscilla or an Aquila and say, ‘I may not be a pastor or a theologian, but I know more than this guy next to me, so I’m going to jump in and share with him because his plane is going down.’
