Today's Meditation

WEDNESDAY, July 8                           Priscilla & Aquila

Psalm 119:1-3 Happy are they whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Happy are they who observe his decrees and seek him with all their hearts! Who never do any wrong, but always walk in his ways.

Today we celebrate Priscilla and Aquila, a woman and man sharing the good news of God in Christ. These faithful saints were partners in ministry at a time when women did not have equal status in society. But we remember them as a pair—peers and partners. They risked much to travel together. Priscilla could have been stoned and Aquila could have been shunned. But they preached the gospel together anyway.

What conversations did Priscilla and Aquila have with each other? Did they talk about a strategy for teaching people about Jesus? Did they discuss how their ministry was a challenge to the status quo? Or were they happy, walking and talking the way Jesus taught them to, seeking the kingdom with their whole hearts?
