All That Matters is Christ

Luke writes in Acts 18:24-28:

Now a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, competent in the Scriptures. He had been instructed in the way of the Lord. And being fervent in spirit, he spoke and taught accurately the things concerning Jesus, though he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue, but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him and explained to him the way of God more accurately. And when he wished to cross to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived, he greatly helped those who through grace had believed, for he powerfully refuted the Jews in public, showing by the Scriptures that the Christ was Jesus.

Apollos learned more about Christ and in turn he powerfully demonstrated Jesus as the Messiah.  What God did for Apollos; I want in my life.  My hope is that I will want more of Christ.  My desire is that he will transform me.  My prayer is that Christ will shine forth through my preaching with great power and accuracy.  All that matters is that I know more about Christ.  All that matters in my preaching is disclosing more of the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ (Col 2:2-3).
