Daily Reading – 2 Chronicles 33-34 / Acts 9:20-43
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Acts 9:26-27 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple. But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Saul was not a nice guy. Not a nice guy at all. At least, the Saul of the past that is. He would go around, gather up those who professed faith in Christ, and bring them back to be killed for their faith. He even had the authority from those in power to do so. Therefore, when he accepted Christ as Saviour, many people were very skeptical of his salvation and afraid of him. Yet Barnabas stood up for him and with him.
Sometimes young Christians get the same feeling, that people don’t really believe they are saved. The sin in their past, though washed away by the blood of Christ, makes some people skeptical. Sometimes the new believer needs a Barnabas to stand with them in their new life in Christ.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
Would you help someone in his or her new life
and be someone’s Barnabas?
