A look at the ministry of encouragement and mentoring as exemplified in the life of Barnabas.
Ever heard of Albert McMakin? Ever heard of Edward Kimball? Ever heard of Robert Moffat? Ever heard of Barnabas?
We serve a God of comfort and encouragement, who expects us to do the same to others:
2 Cor 1:3-5 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.
