BE TEACHABLE

Text:  Acts 18:23-28

 

Apollos

      Eloquent

      Mighty in the Scriptures

      Instructed in the way of the Lord

      Fervent in spirit

      Teaching accurately what he knew

      Acquainted only with the baptism of John

 

Priscilla and Aquilla

      They heard Apollos

      They took him aside

      They explained the way of God more accurately

 

We too must be willing to learn

      There is more that we do not know, than what we do know

      We must humbly acknowledge that our understanding is limited

      We must be open to new facts and explanations
 

Footnotes:

   We may accurately know many things

   We may not be familiar with other important truths

   Our understanding is always limited to what we have learned so far

 

 

Three tests for Discerning Spiritual Truth

 

      1. Spiritual understanding must always be subject
           to the clear teachings of Jesus as recorded in scripture.

 

                        Be cautious of any “new revelation”

                    or a “secret insight” (see 1 Tim 6:3-5; 1 John 4:2-3)

 

      2. Spiritual truths will always magnify Jesus Christ
 

                       All things are from Him and through Him
                   and for Him and for His glory.    (Ro 11:36)

 

      3. Spiritual truths will always strengthen and build up the church.

 

                      The church is built by Christ (Mt 16:18)

                         Is bought by Christ (Acts 20:28

                 And is the bride of Christ (Rev. 19:7-10; C.21-22
