The ONE that is True will Rescue and Pull US Through
In the post “Pull US Through” noted was that Paul faced
much opposition from the Jewish leaders. People stepped up to fill the gaps to
strengthen the early church. Paul had a daunting task to fight against the
Jewish leaders who wanted Judaism to be the only recognized religion of the
Roman Empire and to outlaw Christianity.
He relied on help from many during
his missionary journey. When he was in Corinth, he stayed with Aquila and
Priscilla. Paul then received financial help from his friends at Philippi (2
Cor. 11:8) which gave him the opportunity to devote himself entirely to his
missionary work. Then Silas and Timothy joined him in Corinth.
Also written about was a man
named Apollos who had a talent of speaking. After he was taught more about the
gospel, he was very effective at debating the Jewish leaders by proving from
the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.
To win the fight against the
cultural and religious erosion we are seeing in front of us in the United
States and throughout the world, we have to pull together and each use our
talents for the glory of God.
We must recognize that our
greatest strength or power is prayer because when we pray, we are speaking to
the ONE who already has every answer. Enjoy today’s inspiring video with these
thoughts in mind: Shoulders – For King
And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second
prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of
healing those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and
those speaking in different kinds of tongues. - 1 Corinthians 12:28
