VERSE: When [Barnabas] arrived and saw this evidence of God’s blessing, he was filled with joy, and he encouraged the believers to stay true to the Lord. ACTS 11:23
POINT - 1: There was a priest from Cyprus named Joseph, but the disciples called him Barnabas —which means “son of encouragement.
POINT - 2: In affirming what God was doing, he expressed God’s heart.
POINT - 3: God’s default attitude toward His children is to be encouraging, but encouragement is perhaps the voice of God least heard in the church.
POINT - 4: When God speaks, it will almost always be encouraging.
TAKEAWAY: But we need to understand that in the absence of outright rebellion, God is kindhearted and encouraging toward us. That’s how His voice will sound. We can assume that the oppressive, accusing, critical voice we so often hear is coming from some other place.
PRAYER: Father, let me hear Your encouragement often, and give me opportunities to share it with others. Let me be an expression of the goodness, kindness, and gentleness of Your heart.
