Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

A Ministry of Encouragement

We continue reading on in Acts 11 and get to see what was happening at the church in Antioch as people there turned to the Lord. We see that the hand of the Lord was with those at Antioch and that their salvation was based on his work in those people which brought forth faith and repentance. In his time in Antioch, we can learn from the rights and wrongs that he did there like separating himself from the Gentiles (Galatians 2:13). However, we also see that God’s’ people need encouraging, and that Barnabas’ delight in other believers and commendation is an important part of how we build up the body of Christ.
