22 The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23 When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, 24 for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.
What a great week or so it has been, busy but really going well. I am in the process of moving alittle closer to ALCC so I can minister to the church during this season that the Lord has entrusted to me. Again, I am blown away with the love of Christ and the people of ALCC, I am not sure of how long this season will last but I am 100% sure the Lord has plans for all of us.
A couple of things really struck me this week and particularly today, I was with a family tonight that is seeing their Papa go through some real tough stuff in the hospital, ‘Papa’ is in real pain and discomfort as they try to figure out what is going on, as he was laying in his hospital bed, struggling with being poked and prodded, undergoing tests and diagnosis , it was something to watch as his faith was in action even while flat on his back, he was witnessing to nurses, inviting them to church. It got me thinking about Barnabas and Acts 11: 24 for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord. Glenn fills this passage of scripture better than I ever will, Glenn is a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith.
Glenn, I love you, get well
