A Greater Desire and Effectiveness
Apollos had great desire but a limited understanding. - v. 24-25
Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
Apollos had the humility to receive instruction. - v. 26
Apollos was given a greater passion and understanding by the power of the Holy Spirit. - v. 27-28
