Women in Acts (10)

Paul went to the city of Athens. There he met Aquila and his wife, Priscilla. They were Jews who had been forced by the Roman emperor to leave Rome. Priscilla and Aquila were tentmakers. Paul was a tentmaker, too, so he stayed and worked with them. Priscilla and her husband helped teach a man named Apollos. They “took him to their home and helped him understand the way of God better” (Acts 18:26b).
Several times Paul mentioned Priscilla and her husband in his letters to churches. They must have been very faithful people who helped take care of Paul and other Christians. One time Paul even said that “they risked their own lives to save mine” (Romans 16:3b).
Today God gives us opportunities to be like Priscilla and Aquila. We can pray for missionaries and support them financially. We can also go on mission trips to help missionaries do their work. Ask God to show you where you can serve Him best.
