Paul stayed a while longer in Corinth, but then it was time to take leave of his friends. Saying his goodbyes, he sailed for Syria, Priscilla and Aquila with him....
Recently, I read an article on Priscilla and Aquila. I loved the attributes that were pointed out about both of them. Priscilla put her whole heart into all that she did. Her name is mentioned first three times before her husband Aquila throughout the New Testament. But, it is never mentioned alone. She was with her husband in all that they did, serving Jesus, making tents, and living their lives.
I imagine Priscilla as high energy, a women that puts her all into all that she does. She's committed, loyal, loving, and everything about her shines bright. She was highly gifted and dearly loved.
Priscilla was in one accord with her husband. Unlike Nabal and Abigail, who were opposed to each other in character, Priscilla and Aquila walked in unison with Christ Jesus and were of one mind with Him and each other. They were happy.
Paul spoke very highly of Priscilla and Aquila, they were his friends. He stayed in their home. They traveled together. They assisted Paul and worked together with him and spread the Word of the Gospel wherever they went.
Priscilla is a wonderful example for women today. She did not shirk back in the adventures of life. She knew who God had made her to be, and was not threatened by her queenly title. She loved her husband and the Body of Christ, and worked beside him as an equal. She was not afraid to shine, lead, support, and love through every opportunity. She wholeheartedly jumped into life with the people around her.
May your life be a wholehearted adventure, seeking peace, brightness, courage, and love wherever you go. And, like Priscilla, step into each day utilizing the gifts God has given you, and exploring new ones.
