Train Up Apollos in the Way He Should Go

24 Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. 25 He 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 and sisters encouraged him and wrote to the disciples there to welcome him. When he arrived, he was a great help to those who by grace had believed. 28 For he vigorously refuted his Jewish opponents in public debate, proving from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Messiah. Acts 18:24-28

Apollos seemed to be a great student of the law and of Jesus. He had most of the Gospel right, and Priscilla and Aquila gave him the rest.

Then armed with the full Gospel of God, he was unstoppable.

All of these great men and women of the faith were exceptional at a few things. Then the Holy Spirit used their skills, talents, passions, and desires to achieve His purposes.

The Holy Spirit still uses us and whatever talents and passions we bring to the table.

Never forget that despite the obstacles and barriers you now face, “greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.”

Ask Him to use your giftings more, and He will.
