Paul and Barnabas

Leave a comment

Barnabas was a very accepting person. Of the disciples in Jerusalem, it was he that was the first to believe that Saul had truly changed and had become a Christian. It was he that stood up for Paul, which was Saul’s new name, and helped the other believers in Jerusalem accept Paul, too as a new believer.

When the believers (those who believed in Jesus) heard that many in Cyprus were beginning to believe in Jesus also, they sent Barnabas to help share the good news of the gospel. Barnabas was quick to see the opportunity to get Paul involved and begin his ministry to the Gentiles.

These lessons teach us how we too can tell others the good news of the Gospel. Jesus accepts us. He wants everyone to be in His family of believers!

I enjoy planning lessons, directing VBS and child care programs. Children's ministry is my passion. God Almighty is my strength and inspiration. For fun I choose hiking, canoeing, camping, cooking, and reading.
