Acts 18

1 After these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth;

2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them.

3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.

6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

7 And he departed thence, and entered into a certain man’s house, named Justus, one that worshipped God, whose house joined hard to the synagogue.

8 And Crispus, the chief ruler of the synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his house; and many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized.

9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

12 And when Gallio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgment seat,

13 Saying, This fellow persuadeth men to worship God contrary to the law.

14 And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:

15 But if it be a question of words and names, and of your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.

16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.

17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.

18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

20 When they desired him to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;

21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.

22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.

23 And after he had spent some time there, he departed, and went over all the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.

24 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 publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

37 thoughts on “Acts Chapter 18

  1. Verses 8-11 MSG “In the course of listening to Paul, a great many Corinthians believed and were baptized. One night the Master spoke to Paul in a dream: “Keep it up, and don’t let anyone intimidate or silence you. No matter what happens, I’m with you and no one is going to be able to hurt you. You have no idea how many people I have on my side in this city.” That was all he needed to stick it out. He stayed another year and a half, faithfully teaching the Word of God to the Corinthians.” This goes hand in hand with what we heard last night, we have to step it up, keep it up, move it up…..however you want to view IT.

    In the end of this chapter Priscilla and Aquila took Apollos aside and not only told him the rest of the story; but, encouraged him, blessed him and opened the way to him through the disciples. This too goes hand in hand with what we did last night in praying for one another. God is so good….thank you Jesus for the men of God you bless us with and for my POFW family.

  2. 5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.

    When we feel pressed the spirit to witness to folks, we should do it whether they accept it or reject it.

    pressed 4912
    συνέχω synéchō

    from and ; to hold together, i.e. to compress (the ears, with a crowd or siege) or arrest (a prisoner); figuratively, to compel, perplex, afflict, preoccupy:

    The Holy Ghost pressed him, or arrested him and he preached the gospel!

  3. 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

    11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

    Paul was being led by the Spirit of God, when we follow the Spirit all things will work out. Most of us do not follow the Spirit closely enough and do not let the Holy Ghost direct our steps. The Bible teaches us a good man’s steps are ordered by the Lord. Are we willing to let God direct those steps?
    If we will follow God he will see us through!!

  4. Acts 18:28 (NLT)
    28 He refuted the Jews with powerful arguments in public debate. Using the Scriptures, he explained to them that Jesus was the Messiah.

    The apostles, and early church heroes had one thing in common, they preached Christ. When it came time to witness to the worldly people they wanted to make sure they spoke the most powerful thing that they could.

    The devil hates Calvary and wants the church to become silent on it. He tries to convince us that it’s a story we only talk about on Easter. He wants us to think that we need to keep Calvary spoken of cautiously because the blood might offend people.

    The world needs to hear more about Jesus than ever before!

  5. We can not be silent!

    Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city. And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them. (‭Acts‬ ‭18‬:‭9-11‬ KJV)

    As the church of our city, this is not the time to stay silent! We must continue in the truth, and preaching the truth. We are reaching for the lost, the backslider! Everyone we come in contact with needs to hear the gospel. Keep reaching for those who are around you. I’m thankful that someone reached out for me.

    For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. (‭Luke‬ ‭9‬:‭56‬ KJV)

  6. 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 publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

    Many people have a good knowledge of the Bible and God, they just need a little more teaching on the full truth of the Gospel.

  7. 4And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

    His persistence is evident because he went to the synagogue everyday. He reasoned and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. It did not matter if they were Jew or Gentile.. white, black, or purple their salvation was so vital that he contended with them daily. Will we go to bat for souls like him?

  8. NO FEAR

    9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:
    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

    Knowing the voice of the LORD is so important to the church. The LORD JESUS is constantly speaking to HIS church through HIS WORD and HIS SPIRIT. No doubt if we prayed specifically for a WORD from the LORD we could and would hear JESUS speak.

    Most often we fear the unknown. Concerns or situations in life that we are concerned about that have not even manifest themselves. No doubt the LORD is speaking to us as he did to Paul; that we have no idea how many supporters that he has. We must not concern ourselves with the outcome of GOD’s plan. HE is in control. We should concern ourselves only with our willingness to obey HIS voice and proceed with NO FEAR.

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  9. 25 He had been taught the way of the Lord, and he taught others about Jesus with an enthusiastic spirit[h] and with accuracy…

    Once taught, we must teach others!

  10. TO HAVE A VOW…

    18 And Paul after this tarried there yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn his head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

    A VOW = noun: vow; plural noun: vows
    1. a solemn promise.
    synonyms: oath, pledge, promise, bond, covenant, commitment, avowal, profession, affirmation, attestation, assurance, guarantee; More
    a set of promises committing one to a prescribed role, calling, or course of action, typically to marriage or a monastic career.
    verb
    verb: vow; 3rd person present: vows; past tense: vowed; past participle: vowed; gerund or present participle: vowing
    1. solemnly promise to do a specified thing.
    “he vowed that his government would not tolerate a repeat of the disorder”
    synonyms: swear, pledge, promise, avow, undertake, engage, make a commitment, give one’s word, guarantee; archaicplight
    “I vowed to do better”
    2.archaic
    dedicate to someone or something, especially a deity.
    “I vowed myself to this enterprise”

    So many of us go through life making vows, promises, commitments, and covenants. Only to put them a side when they become complicated, no longer fun, or interfered with the rest of our schedules. Some of this promises are made for a lifetime, some of them are made to our mates, some to our jobs, and others to our GOD… We make vows or negotiations with God in moments of crisis and then what we forget, or go back to the negotiations table with God… you know I was desperate I know you will understand me and not judge me for it or hold me to it… WELL, THEN WHERE IS THE VALUE OF YOUR WORD. GOD SAYS 2 Corinthians 1:20 For every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in Him. Therefore, the “Amen” is also spoken through Him by us for God’s glory. WHY THEN ARE WE UNABLE TO DO THE SAME TO HIM… MAKE A VOW AND BRAKE IT NOT. Ecclesiastes 5:5 Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. We all sign a covenant, We all have a vow, we all have a price to pay for all the blessings bestowed upon us. Luke 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

  11. 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.

    Pastor talked about the know-it-all last night. The know-it-all would have not learned anything in this setting. Apollos was a smart man, he knew his stuff, but you don’t see him refusing Aquila and Pricilla here. They didn’t correct him in front of everyone. They took him to the side respectfully and taught him. There are two things I see here. The first is to not be moved in the doctrine but alway leave room for someone to impart to you. The second is if you need to correct someone or show them another way, do it in respect or it probably won’t do any good.

  12. 3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

    4 And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks.

    We must be careful who we “abide” with. In this case they were of the same occupation and they abode together. Too many times we are “abiding” with people that are not of the same faith. I’m not suggesting you can’t be friends, work with, fellowship with etc, else how will you win them. But there is a danger in “linking” up with someone that is a nonbeliever and continually being involved with them. Someone has to influence the other. Will you influence them towards God, or will they influence you towards the world? We may think it is harmless and it won’t hurt but oil and water doesn’t mix. One will overtake the other….which one will you be?

  13. vss.9- 16 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by vision, Be not afraid but speak, and hold not thy peace:
    For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
    And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.
    12 And when Galliio was the deputy of Achaia, the Jews made insurrection with one accord against Paul, and brought him to the judgement seat,
    13 Saying, This fellow persuadeth ( meaning continually ) men to worship God contrary to the law.

    This verse reminded me as our leaders continually encourage us to Worship and Praise our Great King JESUS.
    SOME may say I’m so tired of hearing that …. Its repeatedly over and over again …. Well I say GOOD
    keep repeating it keep praising and keep worshipping. I don’t ever want to lose those weapons .There is power in those weapons.
    Okay where was I back to verse 14

    v14 And when Paul was now about to open his mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O ye Jews, reason would that I should bear you;
    15 But iif it be a question of words and names, and your law, look ye to it; for I will be no judge of such matters.
    16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.

    Gallio dismissed the case and Paul took advantage of it. We must also take advantage of the time we have.
    I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work
    John 9:4

    Then said Jesus to them again. ( Repeating)
    Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. John 20:21

    JESUS as sent us it’ s not time to go home but to keep going. Speak HIS WORD as we did last night with power, and anointing. Speak what ever TRUTH GOD PUTS IN YOUR HEART. GODS SPIRIT WILL RESPOND TO HIS WORD

    If we don’t hear it preached our faith will soon be gone. We can have what we teach , preach and speak. Thank you JESUS!!!!

    I thank GOD for a godly mother she would gather us kids and tell us we are apostolic , and this is the reason why . We behave like this and that . We have been born again baptized in JESUS NAME not like every body else . We are different and don’t ever be a shame of your experience you have in GOD
    but lift up your hearts ….. Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the king of glory shall come in. Psalm 24:7

    We can have what we speak fear not !!!

  14. 9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent!
    10 For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.”
    11 So Paul stayed there for the next year and a half, teaching the word of God. (NLT)

    “We cannot be silent, we cannot sit by, we must take this city for the cause of Jesus Christ!” Speak truth, speak the scriptures and do it all for the glory of God! When we do this, no one is able to stop you. The safest place to be is in the will of God; heed His call and obey His word.

  15. 6But when they opposed and insulted him, Paul shook the dust from his clothes and said, “Your blood is upon your own heads—I am innocent. From now on I will go preach to the Gentiles.”

    In a sense the people (Jews) were actually rejecting Jesus. Reminded me of the tongue interpretation last night, ‘they were laughing in his face’. One can only try to reach someone for a certain time, and then move on. It’s up to us to turn that laughter of mocking into a laughter of understanding and knowledge of God.

  16. Acts 18:25 This man had been trained in the way of the Lord ; and burning in spirit , he gave himself up to teaching the facts about Jesus, though he had knowledge only of John’s baptism

  17. Thank God Almighty he came to the Gentiles, but what I noticed he had to leave his own people. Then the Lord came to him in a vision to comfort him and to tell him speak freely and that he wasn’t alone!

    “Your not alone.”…………………

  18. 5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ.

    6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

    This just let’s us know that when the spirit tells you to speak and testify to someone we must do it do. It’s up to them whether they receive it or not but what counts is the obedience.

  19. 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

    Jesus thank you for your reassurance that as long as we do your will, you are there for
    us.
    The vision ,we receive,when we take on his name….Reach the lost…..look at your neighbors,co-workers, people you see at the grocery store.Be not afraid,but Speak- how will they know unless we tell them- 2 Cor 4:3
    Hold not thy peace,the Holy Ghost lives in us
    For we are not doing this alone,he gives you the words to speak..there is an army rising…many people Jesus has in this city.an not to mention the army of angels waiting to do Jesus’s bidding. I am very thankful for My God Jesus,My Pastor,and My church family. I am not alone.

  20. 9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! 10 For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” 11 So Paul stayed there for the next year and a half, teaching the word of God.

    Don’t stay quite speak out about God!! Many people may come against you when you speak the truth but only 1 God protects you and nothing can come against you with God on your side!!! 🙂

  21. A lot of people in that time still thought that Jesus wasn’t Christ but Paul knew the truth and wanted to share it but people opposed what he was saying and wouldn’t listen to him so he went to people who believed what he believed the Gentiles while he was with them he got a dream from God saying to stay confident and to not be silent.

    Sometimes people have the right Idia but need encouragement so be encouragers and don’t be silent with gods word.

  22. And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. (‭Acts‬ ‭18‬:‭6‬ KJV)

    There are times when we must leave behind those who hinder out relationship with the Lord. It is not always easy and sometimes it hurts. However, I have found the Lord will bless those who dilligently seek Him!

  23. 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

    No matter who is coming against you, do not be afraid for God is with you and he is on your side. No matter how big circumstances may seem, our God is bigger and our God is greater.

    Hundreds of times in the scriptures it says how we shalt not fear, because that can be the devil’s number one tactic to keep us from performing the work of God. It could be something as simple as fear keeping us speaking out a word of God to someone because we are afraid of what the person will say or if we are wrong in hearing the voice of God. But be bold, for God is with us in every circumstance in our lives.

    Hebrews 13:6 So that we may boldly say, the Lord is my helper and I will not fear what men shall do unto me.

    2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of peace, of love and of a sound mind.

    Romans 8:14-15 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God,they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but ye have received the Spirit of adoption whereby we cry, Abba Father.

  24. 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.

    Hallelujah! Teaching others the truth and the amazing power that Jesus Christ has. Nothing is to hard or impossible for my Lord Jesus. Sowing the seed of faith in others is amazing because at the end you get to see the great men and woman of God they become to be. Jesus is the best thing that has happened to me. Spreading your gospel. Thank you for choosing me Jesus 🙂

  25. For he mightily convinced the Jews, and that publicly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus is Christ.

    Enough said.

  26. One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭18‬:‭9-10‬ NLT)

    For Jesus spoke and said Paul don’t be afraid, for Paul was afraid that his work would’ve been cut short in Corinth by opposing the Jews (as in Thessalonica and Berea) or Paul thought by the highly-charged worldliness around him,for also Jesus said to Paul But speak, and do not keep silent, for the solution to Paul’s fear was to obey Jesus command to not be afraid to speak and not keep silent for Paul only had to get Gods word out to people.For Jesus said to Paul,for Iam with you basically this was a word from God to Paul to tell Paul not be afraid and keep preaching the word in Corinth (as in Thessalonica and Berea),for Jesus never told Paul that his opponents would try to stop him from preaching the word but God said that they wouldn’t be successful from stopping Paul from preaching the word in Corinth (as in Thessalonica and Berea),For Jesus spoke and said I have many people in this city for Paul who must have often had doubts about the survival and health of the Corinthian church. In Jesus Name Amen !!!!

  27. 24 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:

    There are those who truly and fervently love and defend Gods kingdom but perhaps have not come to revelation of Jesus. This made me think of other brothers and sisters from other denominations or non that truly seek and follow to have a walk with God but haven’t had a full revelation of Jesus and baptism in Jesus name. There are those that have been taught and really want to do things for God but need to be explained a more perfect way, the gospel. The Holy Spirit was given to us as power to be witnesses. The word says that God opened the understanding and revelation to the scriptures. It is the same Holy Spirit that leads us to all truth. It is our command to explain what great revelation of Jesus. With out the Holy Spirit one cannot understand the Holy Scriptures. We ought to pray for those that have received the revelation that God will open their understanding to the scriptures and that revelation may be given that they all may be born of the water, baptism in Jesus name, and of the Spirit.

    Luke 24:45-48

    45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,

    46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

    47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

    48 And ye are witnesses of these things.

  28. 24 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.

    Apollos was an educated man that was passionate, however he needed more. As we read on we see exactly what we heard and witnessed last night; willing vessels full of the Holy Ghost (Jesus) sharing the truth, and exercising apostolic authority. One should thank God for truth, and for the opportunity to be in his house. Dear God, please change me so that I might hear, see, and do more; “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done”. “In God we trust”. “One nation under God”. What a mighty God we serve! Thank God for his word. God bless America, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  29. 6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

    Some will oppose the Word of God when we try to deliver it to them but we should not take offense, just shake it off. They are not opposing us but God. It is His Words. We cannot allow a few people’s rejection to stop us from reaching the masses.

  30. 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.
    Paul allowed the spirit of God to lead him and give him guidance to speak the truth of the word without fear. In doing so he was able to stay there for a extended period of time and God was able to use him greatly.

  31. 9 Then spake the Lord to Paul in the night by a vision, Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace:

    10 For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city.

    11 And he continued there a year and six months, teaching the word of God among them.

    Will you let the lord guide you like Paul did
    ? will you TRUST the lord to guide your steps ?

  32. Paul had a work to do. He wasn’t about sitting around waiting for things happen, he was about being proactive. God is looking for those who are about their father’s business. Let us do the work of the Lord everyday.

  33. Remove the guilt

    6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean; from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.

    We are charged to warn the world of the destruction that sin brings. Failure to do so puts their blood on our hands.

    8 If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 9 But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, that person shall die in his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.
    (Ezekiel 33:8-9 ESVST)

  34. Be A Blessing

    3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.

    2 Corinthians 12:14 NLT
    Now I am coming to you for the third time, and I will not be a burden to you. I don’t want what you have—I want you. After all, children don’t provide for their parents. Rather, parents provide for their children. 

    Paul did not simply take from others, though he had opportunity for it; instead he chose to serve and bless the place where he was. We must examine our own lives and ask if we live by the standard to leave things better on our departure than it was on my revival. Furthering the gospel means we will have be sacrifice and sow into those whose lives we touch.

  35. One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” (‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭18‬:‭9-10‬ NLT)

    We should never be ashamed of speaking truth. The word of God has been given to us to share to everyone. If you don’t want Him to be ashamed of you than prove you’re not ashamed of Him. God is good!

  36. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. (‭Acts‬ ‭18‬:‭3‬ KJV)

    It is good for those who have like trades to be together as they are able to help one another easier. They tend to talk about the same things and reason similarly.

  37. Tentmakers !!!! 1. AFTER these things Paul departed from Ath’-ens, and came to Cor’-inth; 2. And found a certain Jew named A-quil’-a, born in Pon’-tus, lately come from It’-a-ly, with his wife Pris-cil’-la; (because that Clau’-di-us had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:
    ) and came unto them. 3. And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers. Praise ye the Lord !!!! I LIFT YOU UP !!!!
