From the Morning Scripture Readings

Posted by Kendall Harmon

News of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad; and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose; for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a large company was added to the Lord.

--Acts 11:22-24

It was Antioch where the Jewish followers decidedx that the Gospel message was not for thd Jews, and they sent Barnabas, “a good man full of the Holy Spirit” to evangelize the Gentiles. It was at ANtioch where the term “Christian” was first used. Most of us are Antiochian Christians. Thank you Lord for Barnabas!
