The next stop on Barnabas and Paul’s missionary journey takes them to Antioch in Pisidia. Here they join a worship gathering on the Sabbath where they are asked to provide a word of encouragement to the people gathered together. The encouragement Paul provides them is the same encouragement we need today. That is the Gospel. True encouragement comes from fearing the Lord. The gospel of Jesus Christ encourages us to be a great people, promises a future inheritance, exceeds all of our worldly expectations and is a free gift from God to all those He calls His children to encourage them in every aspect of their lives.
