Reason With Them!
Please join with us sharing God’s Word daily. We will spend about fifteen minutes a day praying and reading every word in God’s Word in approximately three years.
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you.” James 4:10, English Standard Version (ESV)
Thank you for joining us, as we prayerfully continue our Feast in Acts Chapter 18; “Paul at Corinth, with Aquila and Priscilla. (1-6) He continues to preach at Corinth. (7-11) Paul before Gallio. (12-17) He visits Jerusalem. (18-23) Apollos teaches at Ephesus and in Achaia. (24-28)” – Matthew Henry Concise.
Paul is staying in Corinth, with fellow tent makers Aquila and Priscilla. Paul trusts God and continues to preach at Corinth. Paul went before Gallio, who was indifferent to the gospel, didn’t consider Paul’s actions to be serious enough for punishment. He returns to Antioch, continuing to build the believers faith. Apollos teaches at Ephesus and in Achaia. “24 Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, competent in the Scriptures. 25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord. And being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John. 26 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. 27 And when he wished to cross to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed, 28 for he powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.” Acts 18:24-28, ESV. Priscilla and Aquila heard Apollos he was telling people to believe in Jesus. He only knew the baptism of John, rather than disagreeing with him they took him aside and and taught him. The lesson here is rather than causing a roe because you don’t agree with a saint, reason with them in private. Encouraging the saint in the love of Jesus. “and assembling all the chief priests and scribes of the people, he inquired of them where the Christ was to be born. They told him, “In Bethlehem of Judea, for so it is written by the prophet: “‘And you, O Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for from you shall come a ruler who will shepherd my people Israel.’”” Matthew 2:4-6, ESV. Jesus is the Savior of all persons. Encourage people in his love! Keep the first thing first, that is salvation paid for, in full by our Lord Jesus Christ. If the Lord is willing I’ll send and post the Feast again tomorrow
Don’t get caught up in “religion”, it is about a relationship. Our salvation depends completely on God! We are the Saints that Jesus sacrificed his life to pay in full for our sin, when we repent and accept Jesus. He will come to get every Saint; “36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 24:36, ESV. We are building our relationship with Jesus right now, do not wait while you try to change anything. Click this link for more information; admenu.com/calling.htm .
