That’s why the synagogue rulers said to Paul and Barnabas: “Brothers, if you have a message of encouragement for the people, please speak. (Acts 13:15)
And Paul had a message of encouragement for the people. You can read the message in the Book of Acts. (Acts 13: 16-41)
At the end of the message Paul and Barnabas were invited to tell them more on the next Sabbath. Paul and Barnabas did tell them more of course and almost the whole city came to listen to Paul’s preaching of the word of God.
And what was the message of encouragement they had for the people? It was the message of salvation. (Acts 13:26)
SALVATION IS A BIG SUBJECT:
It includes The new Birth, Faith, Repentance, Forgiveness and more.
Let us also remember that Barnabas means Son of Encouragement (Acts 4:36) and that “encouraging” is a gift. You find that in Romans 12:8.
Since something encouraging has a tremendous effect on us, let us encourage each other, especially with the message of SALVATION!
