Acts of the Holy Spirit: Chapter 11
The Holy Spirit works through believers to faith in Christ. Here in Acts 11 the Holy Spirit sent some believers to Antioch to preach and many people came to salvation in Christ. The Holy Spirit also works through believers to help new believers grow in their faith. The Holy Spirit sent Barnabas to Antioch to strengthen these new converts. In verse 23 says “When he came and seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord.” Barnabas was sent by the Spirit to find Paul and bring him to help the new believers in Antioch. In verse 26, the word says “That for a whole year they assembled with the church and taught a great many people.”
The Holy Spirit desires to use you and me to help people come to faith in Christ and help them become grounded in their faith. Pray for God to fill you and use you for His glory as you walk with Him daily.
