“Barnabas was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and strong in faith. And many people were brought to the Lord.” Acts 11:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The name Barnabas means Son of encouragement, and Barnabas was known for encouraging other believers to remain faithful and to cling to the Lord with passionate hearts. There is a correlation between being strong in faith and full of the Holy Spirit, you can’t have one without the other, and the result for Barnabas was that he saw many people coming to a saving faith in Jesus! Lord, I want to be a disciple maker too, help me to be an encourager of people today, fill me with your Holy Spirit and strengthen my faith that I might see you working through me in that same way – boldly speaking Your name, sharing my story and seeing many turn to you! Amen 🛡💪🏼🙏🏼
