Overview

The church of Antioch was one of the most important churches in early Christianity. It teaches us many things about Christian outreach, cultural diversity, prayer, discipleship, and caring for people in need. But we’re going to look at one of the less prominent themes in Acts 11 and 13. It’s one of the keys to gospel ministry that Barnabas shows us in these passages: the ministry of encouragement. It’s a ministry that speaks the truth, but does so in love. It’s an intense, personal, and yet exhortational ministry to people.

As soon as Barnabas shows up and bathes the church with this ministry of encouragement, people start growing. Things start happening. It’s the ministry of truth and love that is the key. Let’s look more closely at what this ministry is and how we get the power to do it with the Holy Spirit.
