The Dynamic Duo (Acts 18:1–4, 24–28)

Aquila and Priscilla walked onto the stage of redemptive history at several points, quietly did what God called them to do, and then faded into the background until the next opportunity to serve. Their names are mentioned, always together, seven times in the New Testament, but they never hog the limelight. It is in their quiet faithfulness, however, that we learn three valuable lessons: 1. Faithful Membership (vv. 1–4; 1 Corinthians 16:19; 2 Timothy 4:19) 2. Serving Membership (vv. 1–4, 24–28) 3. Sacrificial Membership (Romans 16:3–4)

Scripture References: Acts 18:24-28, Acts 18:1-4

In Luke 8:1–3, some women are mentioned whom only Luke mentions this early in his Gospel: Mary, Joanna, Susanna and “many others.” These same women witnessed Jesus’ crucifixion (23:49), burial (23:55), and resurrection (24:1–3). They stuck with him till the end and were there at the new beginning. Their only reason for doing so was that they were healed by Jesus and had now committed to following him. By considering these hidden figures, we’ll learn that, if we have received grace, we will graciously give in return.
