Observation: A few days ago in Luke’s gospel we read that the Holy Spirit would give Christians words to speak in the face of persecution. Now we see that lived out as the Holy Spirit speaks through Peter.
Question: Who is Barnabas? This guy comes out of nowhere, but he will be critical in the work of sharing the gospel to the ends of the earth. Expect to see his name more often.
Application: I want to live generously as part of a church where we share all things in common and the needs of all members are met.
Prayer: Lord, give me boldness to tell others about You.
Barnabas “put his money where his mouth was,” setting the standard for sacrificial giving.
My favorite verse was “All the believers were one in heart and mind.” When the true focus is on Jesus this unity is possible for a body of believers.
