(1-3) Barnabas and Saul Sent Off
All believers have been set apart to do a specific work for God. We must be ready at any time to answer His call just as Barnabas and Saul were ready.
(4-12) Barnabas and Saul on Cyprus
Because of the power of God, Barnabas and Saul did not fear speaking the Gospel to anyone or in any place. In front of Jews and Gentiles, a magician and a proconsul, they unashamedly proclaimed the word of God. Because of their fearlessness and obedience, many became believers in Jesus the Christ.
(13-25) Paul and Barnabas at Antioch in Pisidia
Paul recounts how God found in David a man after His heart, who would do all of His will. This does not mean that David was perfect, but he consistently and constantly sought to follow God and please God in all that he did. He did not want to do wrong. He desired to do what was right and to bring God glory through his words, songs, dance, dreams, and actions. Because of this spirit, God was able to bring a Savior to Israel and the world through David’s offspring.
Favorite verse: (22) And when he had removed him, he raised up David to be their king, of whom he testified and said, ‘I have found in David the son of Jesse a man after my heart, who will do all my will.’
