Preaching with accuracy
Acts 18:26 “… and Apollos began to speak boldly and fearlessly in the synagogue. But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained more accurately to him the way of God [and the full story of the life of Christ].”
Apollos needed the full version. He needed the facts about the cross, resurrection, ascension and the Pentecost story.
Apollos needed Priscilla and Aquila in his life and we all do.
He was a good communicator already but he needed some mentoring. He needed fine tuning. He needed to be held accountable.
This good preacher needed someone to come alongside and critique his messages and bring positive criticism.
Church problems happen when we don’t advocate such mentoring. This means there is a need for vulnerability and transparency. We become a weaker Church if we cannot improve and how can we improve if we are not corrected?
Today my prayer is as I go out to preach is that all over the world preachers will preach with boldness and without fear. But they will preach accurately the ways of God having a full knowledge of the story of God. May it be so in your Church today.
