71 ( 37 | 34 )

Barnabas was a great encourager in the early church. Barnabas's real name was Joses (Acts 4.36). The apostles recognized that this man had such a ministry of encouragement that they nicknamed him Barnabas which means Son of Encouragement.

What a blessing a ministry of encouragement is!

Not only was Barnabas known for his encouragement, Barnabas was known for his generosity. I think a Barnabas ministry is possible for any believer, we can all be encouragers.

  1. Barnabas was an encourager.
  2. Barnabas gave physically to the need of others.
  3. Thirdly Barnabas took Saul and brought him to the apostles

Who might you encourage in ministry? Who might you encourage this week? Who are your Sauls, and your John/Mark's?

Not only did Barnabas encourage individuals Barnabas encouraged Churches where God had him minister. We should all be building each other up. The Church needs encouragers, and we must beware of discouraging others!
