TOPIC: Eleven Qualities Of Apostle Barnabas
TEXT: Acts 11:19-30(NKJV)
Daily Fountain Devotional 11 June 2022 MESSAGE
Barnabas the son of encouragement might not be as popular as Apostle Paul, however, he is notable in the Bible. Barnabas is so trustworthy and grounded in the faith that he was sent as far as Antioch to disciple new converts (v.22). He was a mentor who identified and built up rising stars (vv. 23 & 25); not giving up on ‘rejected’ vessels like John Mark but moulding them under God into veritable instruments (Acts 15:36-41).
He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith (v.24). He was a committed teacher and great giver who devoted a whole year to disciple new converts and also sold his land for the gospel (v.26; Acts 4:36 to 37). Those he mentored were so sound in the faith that people first called them Christians in Antioch (v.26).
Barnabas was trusted, with Saul, to deliver relief donated for needy brethren in Judea. He was also an evangelist who engaged in many missionary escapades with Apostle Paul (Acts 13). Evaluate your life along the above qualities. How committed and trustworthy are you?
What level of sacrifice of time and resources are you putting in God’s work? Are you a fire extinguisher of rising stars? Learn from Barnabas. Be filled with the Holy Spirit and allow Him to control you so that you will live a life with divine qualities and produce sound disciples to the glory of God.
PRAYER: Oh God, help us to radiate these godly qualities of Apostle Barnabas.
