New Testament Bible Meditation- April 8 - Text & Audio

Acts Chapter 18 verses 18 to 28  

Paul, having stayed after this many more days, took his leave of the brothers, and sailed from there for Syria, together with Priscilla and Aquila. He shaved his head in Cenchreae, for he had a vow.
He came to Ephesus, and he left them there; but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.
When they asked him to stay with them a longer time, he declined; but taking his leave of them, and saying, "I must by all means keep this coming feast in Jerusalem, but I will return again to you if God wills," he set sail from Ephesus.
When he had landed at Caesarea, he went up and greeted the assembly, and went down to Antioch.
Having spent some time there, he departed, and went through the region of Galatia, and Phrygia, in order, establishing all the disciples.
Now a certain Jew named Apollos, an Alexandrian by race, an eloquent man, came to Ephesus. He was mighty in the Scriptures.
This man had been instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, although he knew only the baptism of John.
He began to speak 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.
When he had determined to pass over into Achaia, the brothers encouraged him, and wrote to the disciples to receive him. When he had come, he greatly helped those who had believed through grace;
for he powerfully refuted the Jews, publicly showing by the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

Insight- Apollos, an Alexandrian who came to Ephesus, was fervent in spirit and taught others about Jesus. But there were certain things that he needed to learn more accurately, so Priscilla and Aquila took it upon themselves to teach him the same. Later on, he traveled to Achaia, helping new believers to grow in their faith.

Question- Do you help other believers grow in their faith? If you are a new believer, do you submit to others who can teach you matters of the Christian faith more accurately?

Prayer- Dear Father in heaven, help me to learn accurately the matters concerning the Christian faith and also teach others the same. In Jesus name. Amen.
