October 23, 2017: SOAP #2881: Job 13-14; Acts 17-18

Scripture:  Acts (NIV) 18:25 He [Apollos] had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John.
26 He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.
27 When Apollos wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. On arriving, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed.

Observation:   Pricilla and Aquila had such an important ministry!   And although it was to only one person, Apollos, they carried it out faithfully.   Their ministry was so important that it is recorded in the pages of the Bible!

Application:   I must be faithful in ministering to one as I am to many.   The size of the congregation does not matter.   The One I am serving is all important and I want Him to find me faithful!

If it is hard for you to minister to large groups of people, take note that God is also looking for people to minister to individuals!     If you are so busy ministering to the crowds, be careful that you do not miss the opportunity to minister to an individual!

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, find me faithful to do your will. My success is your smile.  Amen
