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 & Country. 

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
