April 26, 2020 Higher Everyday Devotional :- ARRIVAL OF ELOQUENT APPOLOS
SUNDAY APRIL 26, 2020
TOPIC: ARRIVAL OF ELOQUENT APPOLOS
BIBLE TEXT: ACTS 18:24-28
MEMORY VERSE: “And a certain Jew named Appolos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus” (Acts 18:24).
It was Nicolo Machiavelli who stated that “The object of oratory is not truth but persuation.” But this is not true of Appolos who used God’s word to persuade people. He was saved; indeed, a godly orator. He was an outspoken fluent speaker. At his level of the Knowledge of God’s Word, he preached anywhere he went. He knew how to passionately argue his point convincingly with scriptures. He was a motivational speaker. When Aquila and his wife, Priscilla met him, they helped to protect his knowledge in Christ, and he did not argue.
Are you a leader, debater or public speaker in your school. As a Christian, God also expects you to use your oratory talents he preach the gospel. Preaching to sinners does not need quoting multiple scriptures. You should preach Christ crucified, who is the hope of eternal life. Do not wait until you are a perfect preacher. Nobody is. So, start with what you know now. Watch good preachers, listen to their pronunciation, grammar and used of scriptures. Above all study God’s word and be prayerful. Till Holy Spirit will make you eloquent.
CHALLENGE: Have yes preached to any soul this week?
QUOTE: The Holy Spirit will make you eloquent.
PRAYER: Lord, make me a wise soul-winner for Jesus.
