Acts 18

Summary: After yet another almost flogging in Corinth, Paul begins a whirlwind tour, hitting Ephesus quickly before rounding back to Jerusalem by boat and running through the towns be visited in his last go around. Meanwhile, a couple he left behind in Ephesus meet and strengthen Apollos, a mighty speaker for Jesus that seemingly comes out of nowhere.

Response: I'm not sure where you are in your walk, non-existent reader, and to be honest, I'm not sure where I am in mine. To the Paul who is persecuted, may God send you the same message of hope, peace, and perseverance; to Priscila and Acquila, left behind, may God keep your hands useful and your mind sharp until God calls you again; to the Paul who revisits, may you find growth in all things and the wisdom to foster even more; and to the Apollos, may your fervor for Christ be tempered by your mentors into a refined instrument.
