Acts

Acts 4:32–37

As we continue our sermon series focused on the events of the book of Acts and how the Church began, our attention falls this week on the pivotal character of Barnabas, the “son of encouragement.” It’s difficult to imagine matters turning out in all the good ways that they did in the first century without Barnabas—his encouraging spirit, his generosity, and his supportive partnership with Paul. This Sunday, our service begins by encouraging one another to sing “loud praise to Christ our King” with the hymn Come, Christians Join to Sing. We then sing of the generous sharing of Christ’s love in Share His Love, and our Sanctuary Choir sings a meditative gospel rendition of Lord, Make Me an Instrument. We respond with the hymn In Christ We Live, Leigh Anne Bryant sings Walk Together Children, and in the spirit of encouragement Barnabas reflects, we bless John Cowling and the Cowling family through a Family Covenant. Join us as we learn from and live in this spirit of encouragement.

I haven’t come across the exact words since I first saw them despite an exhaustive search, and I’m sure I haven’t recorded it here as eloquently as it appeared in the original, but it…
