Wednesday
Acts 11:19-26

The apostles in Jerusalem sent Barnabas to Antioch to assist the church there. Jerusalem sensed a need in Antioch and commissioned Barnabas for the task.

Barnabas was the perfect choice for several reasons.

1. When Barnabas arrived in Antioch, he wasn’t concerned about who would receive the credit. He was genuinely happy that God was working. We must be willing to rejoice in the success of others and determine to support and encourage every member for the well-being of the entire body.

2. He knew he needed help in the work at Antioch. There is great work to do and we cannot possibly accomplish it alone. We must seek out those who are able to aid in ministry, placing the well-being of the church and community above personal egos.

3. He diligently labored alongside Paul, meeting regularly with the congregation and teaching the people. He wasn’t seeking a larger or more influential role. He was content to serve where the Lord had placed him. We need those who will serve faithfully where God leads and remain in their position as long as the Lord desires.

Although Barnabas is not as well-known as Paul, he served faithfully in the role God called him to serve. He was content to serve wherever the Lord led and in whatever capacity the Lord chose. What steps can you take to invest in those around you with the attitude and commitment of Barnabas?
