Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.
S we are experiencing what they went through 2000 years ago. To stand up and say that you are a Christian and a follower of God is almost a drill line for persecution. They stood up though in the time that they were offered. They did it. We Are Dealing with TODAY!
O what can we do today? How can we be better at establishing the ways to the Kingdom? We are so focused on us, and how we are gonna get to the Kingdom. These disciples declared themselves.When was the last time we declared ourselves? I hurt a brother today. Not in physical sense but spiritual. I am lost for words. The only words i have is I am a Christian. With that said, I am a follower of God. I have prayer and forgiveness as I would want God for me.
A PRAY MORE! Do more! Be grace filled. Be a Christian. They did not live their lives in vain. Application? This is it!
P God, I love you. I love that you love everyone of us. Amen.
