Watch what happened to Paul when his friends arrived in Corinth, “When Silas and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was compelled by the Spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ” (Acts 18:5).
Verse 4 says that Paul had already been reasoning in the synagogue every Sabbath. However, when his two friends arrived, it seemed to give him more energy and he went about testifying to the Jews that Jesus is the Christ.
We see Paul as doing the encouraging, but sometimes he needed it. He had his strengths and he had his weaknesses.
Do you encourage others, or do you always need others to encourage you?
