Acts 19: 1-10


So Paul shows up to meet this guy named Apollos and when he does they all receive the Holy Spirit. 12 guys, living in Asia Minor, all decide to follow Jesus and help Paul as he tries to reach the lost.


These guys spent two years teaching there with Paul. They saw awesome things happen. The entire area knew who they were and more importantly knew about Jesus. Only 12 guys at the beginning, but by the end, their numbers increased and they made a huge difference in the area.


God can do something huge from nothing. He did here. He took a small group of people who were focused and driven and made them into a group that was known through Asia Minor. You may feel like you’re never going to make a difference like you can’t ever have an impact or don’t bring anything to the table. God sees things differently.


You are where you are for a reason. You have gifts and skills and a personality gifted to you for a reason. God has blessed you with resources and funds and connections and experiences for a reason. There is a reason.

What have you done this week that has purpose? What have you done to change the world around you? How have you taken the blessings that God has given you and used them to bless others?
