Prayer of the Day
Fourth Week of EasterApril 28th, 2015
Barnabas gives us a wonderful example of how to help new Christians. He demonstrates strong faith; he ministered joyfully with kindness and encouragement; he taught new believers further lessons about God. His name signifies ‘son of encouragement’. Remember Barnabas when you see new believers, and think of ways to help them grow in their faith. It was the enthusiasm of Barnabas which induced him to search for Paul in order to bring him to Antioch, to be involved in the mission of spreading the Good News. It has been suggested that were it not for Barnabas, Paul might never have come forward to get involved in proclaiming the Good News.
