You know, one of the things I really like is when you can read the Bible in a different version and the change of the words even just slightly produces a thought or a moment that makes you think harder or differently about your life, the Bible, the World or something totally different.
Acts 18:1-8 is one of those sort of packages for me. Packages?
Yes, when I read Acts 18:1-8 today three things jumped out at me:
- When Paul got to Corinth, he stayed with displaced people. But they are Jewish just like he was.
- Even in Paul’s life, there is a time where he had to “do something else” to make a living while still doing ministry. The start of his efforts in Corinth were not self sustaining.
- Paul’s greatest success in ministry in Corinth happened not to “his own” people, but happened with people from other nations.
