Alex Kremer 04-02-2023 // Make Disciples; Not Just Converts; Acts 18:18-19:10
Often in ministry, the focus of our efforts turns to converting souls, preaching the Gospel so that more will believe and be added to the kingdom. And while this is the first step, we must not be satisfied with simply making converts, but must also add to our strategy training disciples what it means to follow Christ.
Continuing in our study of Acts, Paul leaves Priscilla and Aquila in Ephesus. It is there they are introduced to Apollos, a man of Alexandrian birth; eloquent and mighty in the Scriptures. But he did not yet know the complete truth about Jesus. Together, Priscilla and Aquila teach and mentor Apollos, through which he "powerfully refuted the Jews in public, demonstrating by the Scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. We pray you will be richly blessed and encouraged through the teaching of God's Word.
