"And he (Apollos) 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 (accurately)" - Acts 18:26
Many ministers are skillful in their delivery of Christian messages, but do not have a full knowledge or understanding about the life, death, resurrection and doctrines of Christ. They are not alone.
Many of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, not only have limited knowledge and understanding about Christ, they have never had any training in discipleship, holiness and ministry work.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” – II Timothy 3:16-17
Aquila and Priscilla’s desire to help Apollos was not only a thoughtful, or “nice thing” to do, it was an act of sincere love toward a fellow brother, to help him grow in his knowledge of Christ and excel in his ministry. They took advantage of the opportunity to do a good thing, especially for a brother of the household of faith.
“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith” – Galatians 6:10
What would you be willing to share, to help a fellow brother and sister in Christ, grow and excel in their life with Christ? Better yet, how can they, if no one will show them?
“And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me?” - Acts 8:31a
