Tell What Great Things God Has Done For Us

Acts 18:24-28, (KJV), And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus. (25) This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John. (26) And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto them, and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly. (27) And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace: (28) For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

     Reading these verses closely you will notice the following words as written under inspiration of God…”who (Apollos) when he was come (unto the church at Achaia), helped them much which believed through grace” (vs.27). My thought is simply this: if you want to help much those of the church, if you want to really bless the sheep of the living God; then simply, consistently and boldly…”publicly shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ” (vs.28). Said another way…determine not to preach anything other than ‘Christ and Him crucified’. By the faithful discharge of his calling, this man was of great help and encouragement to his brethren. Who among us does not need much comfort and assistance in a cold and dying world? Who among us do not need daily reminding of the lovely and wonderful atoning work of our glorious Redeemer! I do, and I must hear of Him who loved me and died for me! I can think of no other direct and straight forward way to console the bride of Christ than to tell her about the ONE who did everything necessary and everything essential to guarantee her eternal happiness. Lord, may we be found faithful to our calling . . .to tell them what great things God has done for us.
