We are first introduced to Priscilla in Acts 18:
Priscilla and Aquila follow the ministry of Christ
“Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He’d been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately.” Acts 18: 24-26
What I love about this is that we see how committed they were to spreading the gospel of Truth and how much they clearly cared for God’s anointed. We also learn in Romans 16 just how loyal to Paul and dedicated to building of the Church they were:
“Greet Priscillaand 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.” Romans 16:3-4
Priscilla was a steadfast co-laborer
Priscilla was not just a faithful laborer alongside her husband, but was considered a co-laborer to Paul and in Christ. She faithfully served without wavering even in the midst of being turned out form her country and in the face of opposition to the gospel. We can learn from her to stay the course no matter what.
Priscilla was a bold teacher and mentor
Apollos was a popular, powerful preacher that drew crowds but none of that intimidated her and her husband Aquila. They invited this great man into their home to mentor him and correct him in the truth for the advancement of the gospel of Jesus.
We can learn from Priscilla to be bold as teachers and mentors in the truth and to bring correction when necessary for the purpose of the gospel.
Priscilla was gracious in her ministry
Priscilla seems to carry herself and execute the ministry entrusted to her with grace. She graciously invited people into her home and left a lasting impact of eternal value.
It is clear from scripture that Priscilla was well-respected, especially by Paul. In fact, in five instances, Priscilla is mentioned before her husband. This was unusual for that time when husbands were almost always referenced before their wives.
We can learn from Priscilla that laboring for Christ and His Truth will always be honored.
Priscilla was an anointed, powerful example of biblical womanhood in ministry
All that Priscilla did was to honor Christ and His Kingdom. May we set our hearts to labor for His Cause as she so courageously did.
