The 2 A’s of Preaching
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[a] 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.
We have to make it our business as Christians not just to preach the word accurately but get deeper into His word so we can preach it adequately. Apollos was the teacher who was so eloquent that people wanted to hear him teach and when the disciples saw his giftings they set him aside so that he can be more accurate and adequate in sharing the gospel.
It is a challenge for us as preachers of the word and as disciples to have our Priscilla and Aquilla to train us to do so. I thank God for the people who have helped me, pointed out my flaws and got my into studying the Word of God more.
