This weekend, David Marvin walked us through Acts chapter 18. He showed us how Aquila and Priscilla were hospitable, were willing to go, and made disciples; and he warned us how easy it is to have a marriage full of ministry activity but not a marriage on mission. However, while Aquila and Priscilla were the example from the text, it’s not just married couples that these truths apply to, but all Christians who desire to live on mission.
1. “Faithful Christians are hospitable. Hospitality is not about the size of someone's home, but about the size of someone's heart.” What’s one way this next week—regardless of the size of your home—that you can be (more) hospitable? Share this with your community group and ask them to hold you accountable to doing it.
2. “Faithful Christians are willing to go. They (Aquila & Priscilla) started with the assumption that if there is a need in the body of Christ they are the solution for the need unless God makes it clear that they aren't.” What area of your life—personal, work, family, neighborhood, etc.—can you be more “willing to go”? Where in your sphere of influence is there a need, and how can you go meet that need?
3. Faithful Christians make disciples. "…but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately (Acts 18:26b).” When was the last time you “explained to someone the way of God more accurately”? Who is one person in your life right now that you can disciple? Initiate with that person this week and set up a time to get together.
