In Acts 18.24-28, we read the story of the eloquent speaker Apollos. He was very knowledgeable in the scriptures, and he boldly preached the doctrine of the Lord.However, he was short on things that he needed to know. A couple, Aquila and Priscilla heard him speak and they saw that he needed help so, they requested a meeting with him. After spending time with him studying the scriptures, they corrected what was lacking, by teaching him the word of God more perfectly. Afterwards Apollos went back to preaching, being better than he ever had been. What a fine fella this Apollos was.
Lesson from this is, how many preachers are humble enough to accept constructive criticism? Preacher, what if you are very passionate when it concerns preaching; but you miss the point on things? Will you allow yourself to be corrected? No preacher knows everything; only the word of God does. Preacher, what if the church that you work for, is wrong? You think you are preaching truth, but instead you are preaching damnation?
Will you accept it, if someone attempts to correct the doctrine you teach?
