Subtitle: AN INVITATION TO DINNER
Apollos served the Lord Jesus in Ephesus, Corinth, and Crete. His love for Christ is manifested in his bold presentation of the Gospel, from the Scriptures (the Old Testament), to unbelieving Jews in Corinth and elsewhere. May we possess the same boldness.
Moreover, Aquila and Priscilla took the time to disciple Apollos. In the ancient world, fellowship involved hospitality. Meals provided excellent opportunities for fellowship and discipleship. It is very probable this godly couple took Apollos into their home and shared meals together, and that through this, they equipped him with the fullness of the Gospel.
There is a great need in the body of Christ for “mature” believers to equip the unequipped through godly, caring discipleship from the dinner table.
May there be many more Aquilas and Priscillas in the the body of Christ. All you have to know is Jesus, His Word, and how to cook. This is a great syllabus for discipleship. Sadly, “mom and pop” discipleship ministries are few and the emphasis forgotten. Wake up “mature” believers! There are cities full of young men and women waiting for an invitation to dinner!
God bless you.
