Barnabus was so trusted as to be sent by the Jerusalem Church to investigate the reports of Gentile converts in Antioch. He rejoiced in what he found God had done, and through him, many more were added to the Church. Barnabus was full of the Holy Spirit, meaning submissive to Him in his daily walk, which led to his being used greatly of God.
And we pray:
Use me, Lord, as you used Barnabus, to lead many to You, I pray. Help me submit to the Spirit’s leading, which comes through Your Word, that I may be ready to speak and act for you in every situation that arises. Amen.
