Teacher: Cody Clark & Talor Clark Series: The Acts of the Apostles Scripture: Acts 18
Target Statement: Ministry isn’t just something to do, it’s the heartbeat of who we are.
The truth is that marriage isn’t the high water mark for God to use you:
All of that to say, your influence is not limited by your marital status, nationality, tax bracket, education level, or addictions. Your ability to live a full and significant life is based only on your relationship with Jesus. We are all on the same team, just playing different positions.
Doing ministry with your spouse looks like:
You can see multiple times in our text where their spirit of hospitality is used to strengthen and support the believers:
Being single doesn’t exclude you from being hospitable; it simply looks different.
How can you be creative with hospitality? How can you take your hospitality to someone in need? Ex: meal train, sweet treat in a hard season, gas money, an afternoon to clean someone else’s house so they can rest, etc.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17.
In vv. 24–28 we find Priscilla and Aquila explaining the Gospel of grace to Apollos. He knew only the baptism of John, which meant he had never learned of the baptism of the Spirit and the founding of the church. Instead of embarrassing him in public, Priscilla and Aquila took him home and taught him the Word. Prov. 25:11 “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.” Apollos proves to us that it is possible to have eloquence, zeal, and sincerity, and still be wrong! God led Apollos to Corinth, and there God gave him a strong ministry (1 Cor. 3:6; 16:12).
What does studying scripture together in your marriage look like? What does praying together in your marriage look like? If our marriages are going to be solid, then we have to build a foundation that is solid.
