One sign of being a Christian is spiritual growth. And the way we grow in Christ is by staying in God’s Word, and continuing His work. But, often times it takes a renewed focus for the ministry to expand, and for church growth to be possible.
Paul hears a message from a man named Apollos, who is a well educated Jew, and a gifted speaker. His message, however, was only a call to repent from the teachings of John The Baptist. It wasn’t insincere, or even inaccurate, it was just incomplete. There was no cross, no resurrection and no power of the Holy Spirit.
