Barnabas Mode


"Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles named Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement), sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles feet" (Acts 4:36-37).

This past evening at our PM services, we had our "Barnabas Ministry." We hand out post cards and write encouraging notes to people. This morning I will get them all in the mail. We think that encouraging one another is important enough for spend some time putting it into, words on paper. You may have the song Love One Another (Angry Words) in your songbook at church, and the words tell us of the devastating effect that rashly spoken words can have... One of the greatest things that God gave us is the ability to articulate our thoughts in words... Speech... James reveals this to us in his epistle: "With our tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be." (3:9-10) If we speak good of God, it is certainly hypocritical for us to speak destructively about others. Whatever gifts or abilities we may be blessed with, all of us can do positive things with the way we speak to and about one another. I will take a few days of devotionals in speaking about some of the things and ways that we might be a encouragement to one another. I certainly don't have the market cornered on this, and I would love to hear some suggestions from you about more areas in which we can lift others up.. I'm feeling better already...

Have a great start to your week... Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
