ROLE MODEL FOR 2017

Acts 11:19-26

 

We can learn from all the characters found in the Bible. One special man that was greatly used of God was Barnabas. We could call Barnabas "Mr. Encouragement" (Acts 4:36-37). Let us learn from his story.

 

INTRODUCTION - Acts 11:19-21 

As a result of the persecution that had resulted from Stephen's martyrdom, many Gentiles, especially in Antioch, came to Christ.

 

AVAILABILITY OF BARNABAS - Acts 11:22

The leaders at the church in Jerusalem heard about the new believers in Antioch and dispatched Barnabas to help them. Barnabas was available to go. When God calls us to service, wherever it is, we need to be available to go as well. Matthew 28:19-20, Romans 12:1, Isaiah 6:8

 

ACTIVITY OF BARNABAS - Acts 11:23, 25-26

·        He was able to recognize the grace of God. Vs. 23

·        He encouraged the new believers. Vs. 23

·        He recruited Saul (Paul) to help teach the new believers. Vss. 25-26

 

ATTRIBUTES OF BARNABAS - Acts 11:24

·        A Good Man

·        Full of the Holy Ghost

·        Full of Faith

 

The end result of Barnabas' ministry was that even more people were saved.
