GOOD OR GOD

 
"He spoke and taught accurately about Jesus, although he knew only of John's baptism." —Acts 18:25
 

People like Apollos seem to make up half the Church. They are good people. Some are eloquent or fearless with outstanding natural gifts (Acts 18:24, 26). Some are well-versed in the Scriptures and can teach accurately about the new way of Jesus. Like Apollos, they can speak about Jesus but don't know Him personally. They need to be taken home by a Priscilla and Aquila, who will explain "God's new way in greater detail" (Acts 18:26) and invite these Apolloses to have a personal relationship with Jesus, turn their lives over to Him, and receive the outpouring of the Spirit.

The Apolloses of our world will no longer be just "good guys" but "God's guys." That one little change between "GOOD" and "GOD" makes all the difference both in this world and the next. Those who are "God's guys" by faith have eternal happiness. Don't just be good, be God's.

 
Prayer: Jesus, pour out Your Spirit on "good Christians."
Promise: "Ask and you shall receive, that your joy may be full." —Jn 16:24
Praise: Sam received the Holy Spirit. Then he began to lead his family in rosaries and a Bible study.
 
(Grow in being "God's guys" by reading the Bible every day. We have several tape series that may help you: Overview of the Bible is six audio tapes starting with AV 10A-1 or three video tapes starting with V-10A. 15-minute Bible Teaching - New Testament is forty audio tapes starting with #700. An Introduction to each Book of the Bible is thirty-two audio tapes starting with AV 21-1 or seventeen video tapes starting with V-21.)
