The theme for today’s Turning Point daily devotional by Dr. David Jeremiah is ”New Testament Missionaries: Aquila and Priscilla ” and it is a message designed for today’s spiritual growth and enhancement.
SCRIPTURE: When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately.
In Acts 18:24, Apollos came to Ephesus. He had a grasp of the Old Testament and was a disciple of John the Baptist. The same Christian couple who welcomed Paul to Corinth at the beginning of the chapter now welcomed Apollos to Ephesus. For Paul they had provided shelter, friendship, and a job in their tentmaking shop. For Apollos they provided instruction. They told him all about Jesus, whom John had introduced to Israel. Apollos later became a great teacher of Christianity, but it’s due to the hospitality of this missionary couple—Aquila and Priscilla.
If you want to study these two, you can find references to them in Acts 18, Romans 16, 1 Corinthians 16, and 2 Timothy 4. If you want to emulate them, look around for a Christian worker needing something you can provide. You may not think of yourself as a missionary, but can you not consider yourself a coworker, coming alongside, helping, paying, praying, providing, or instructing?
Go ahead! Lend a helping hand!
Every pastor and missionary thanks God for people like Aquila and Priscilla, people with hands, hearts, and homes dedicated to the work of the Lord.
