Priscilla & Aquila

by Johnson Bowie
Jesus lived a mission-centered life and left a lasting impact in all of His relationships. He wants us to follow His lead, especially when it comes to our families. Family is a beautiful gift from God, and He has a special plan for yours! Even if you didn’t inherit a good family story, it’s never too late to change the legacy. Let’s commit to doing family on purpose—all for God’s glory—starting today.

Family on Purpose: Priscilla & Aquila
Pastor Johnson Bowie

What is Our Purpose?

Our purpose is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.

Acts 18:1-4 NIV
After this, Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. There he met a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, who had recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla, because Claudius had ordered all Jews to leave Rome. Paul went to see them, and because he was a tentmaker as they were, he stayed and worked with them. Every Sabbath he reasoned in the synagogue, trying to persuade Jews and Greeks.

Acts 18:18-21 NIV
Paul stayed on in Corinth for some time. Then he left the brothers and sisters and sailed for Syria, accompanied by Priscilla and Aquila… They arrived at Ephesus, where Paul left Priscilla and Aquila. He himself went into the synagogue and reasoned with the Jews. When they asked him to spend more time with them, he declined. But as he left, he promised, “I will come back if it is God’s will.” Then he set sail from Ephesus.

1 Corinthians 16:19-20 NIV
The churches in the province of Asia send you greetings. Aquila and Priscilla greet you warmly in the Lord, and so does the church that meets at their house.

Romans 16:3-4 NIV
Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus. They risked their lives for me. Not only I but all the churches of the Gentiles are grateful to them.

2 Timothy 4:19 NIV
Greet Priscilla and Aquila and the household of Onesiphorus.

When You Do Family On Purpose…

Marriage Makes You Better

Proverbs 18:22 ESV
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.

Proverbs 21:9 NIV
Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

The best marriage counseling you will ever get is pre-marital counseling, because who you marry is half the battle.

When You Do Family On Purpose…

All You Own Belongs to Jesus

Mark 8:35 NIV
For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.
