Teach Us

and he began to speak out boldly in the synagogue. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. Acts 18:26

Apollos was a Jew who was described as eloquent and “well versed” in the scriptures. He preached about Jesus Christ and was “fervent in spirit” However Apollos was limited in his knowledge of the full gospel of Jesus. He knew about Jesus and about his baptism, but probably wasn’t educated yet on the resurrection and the ascension, ect.

Priscilla and Aquila heard his limited knowledge and took it upon themselves to fully educate him on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We as Christians probably have limited knowledge of certain areas in The Bible also. Don’t let our human pride limit us and learning from other Christians about the full theology of Christianity.

Priscilla and Aquila were a married couple who served under Paul,  Apollo was a well respected preacher and he could have easily allowed his pride get in the way and blow them off. Especially with Priscilla being a woman, during this time period , most woman were not respected or even educated. However Apollo allowed them to train him on Jesus, and he became a better preacher because of it

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Jesus commanded us to make disciples by teaching the gospel. Priscilla and Aquila fulfilled this great commission by training Apollo, as they have trained many others who preached the gospel throughout their ministry. Don’t allow your human pride or ego to miss out on opportunities to learn about God

Heavenly Father, we pray that your Holy Spirit, works through and in us to teach us your ways, grant us wisdom beyond human comprehension in Jesus Name Amen
