Memory Verse: Romans 3:4
Memory Verse Text: Let God be true, but every man a liar.

Attention Getter:

Point 1: Here was a man who knew the OT scriptures and was well educated and very capable. He was also a man who had an excellent spirit and genuine convictions. He was diligent and careful and wanted to honour the Lord. He was willing to speak out and stand and be counted. BUT - he didn't know everything.
Point 2: It didn't take very long for Aquila and Priscilla to figure it out either. The wisdom of this couple is really quite remarkable. They did not criticize or act condescendingly. They took him unto them - this can literally mean several things and likely all of them in their case! It means they made him a friend, took him to their home, they provided food and fellowship.
Point 3: Wisely they use this time to carefully instruct him further. He was a very valuable man - as he was teachable. They opened up to him through their knowledge of the Word - the things of God more carefully.
Point 4: Notice - they encourage him v27 in his exercise and encourage others to put this fine exercised man to work. The result being - he helped them MUCH. Thank God for a couple like that who could see the true potential.
