Potential

God will send folks into our lives to make us better. God will bring people into our path that will make us even more faithful, more obedient, more effective for the Gospel.

They will help us to become better husbands and wives, better parents, better Christians, better friends.

God wants to do great things through us. And He will send people into our lives to help make that happen.

Listen to what happens today in Acts 18: 24, 26-27:

Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, competent in the Scriptures. . . He began to speak boldly in the synagogue, but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately. And when he wished to cross to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed

PotentialApollos is doing a great job speaking. He is smart, he is eloquent, he is really being used by God.

But Priscilla and Aquila knew that there was more than he could learn, more that he could know, more that he could understand.

He could be even better. He could. He could be even more faithful.

He could accomplish even more.

To learn more, or to be taught more is about our potential. It means that we can do even more for God. It means that we can be even more faithful. It means that we can accomplish even more.

So today, be faithful. And if the chance to learn something new comes, seize it. If the chance to learn from someone that’s been doing it longer than we have come, take it.

God is going to do amazing things through you. And when He sends someone into your path to make you better, thank Him for it!
