18 “discipleship” words from Acts 18

Written by , Posted in Your Church

Paul, Priscilla, Aquila and Apollos bled discipleship. They embodied its three stages: be fed, feed self and feed others. Acts 18:23-28, which details their work together, uses no fewer than eighteen words/phrases bursting with discipleship implications. If you want to write a book about discipleship, the following would make great chapters:

Spending time

Traveled

Strengthening all the disciples

A learned man with a thorough knowledge of the Scripture

Instructed in the way of the Lord

Spoke with fervor, boldly

Taught about Jesus accurately

Baptism

Heard

Invited him to their home

Explained the way of God more adequately

Go

Encouraged

Wrote a letter

Welcomed

Great help

Vigorously refuted in debate

Proving that Jesus was the Messiah
