Be An Encourager

Every person needs encouragement at one time or another.  Barnabus, whose name means “son of encouragement” was a tremendous encouragement in the early church, and especially in the Apostle Paul’s life.  When Saul [his name was later changed to Paul] arrived in Jerusalem after his conversion, most of the disciples were very reluctant to welcome him in because they were afraid that it was a ploy to get in and destroy or persecute them.  It was Barnabus who risked his life to go meet Saul and get to know him.  He was also the one who convinced the other disciples that Saul’s conversion was real, and that they should welcome him in [Acts 9:26-27].  We know much about the Apostle Paul because God used him to write much of the New Testament, and we can thank Barnabus for helping this wonderful servant of God in his early days.  Believers today are in a great need for encouragement.  Would you consider becoming a Barnabus today?  You can read about Barnabus in the book of Acts, chapters 9-15.
