  • Attributes To Admire Series

    Contributed by Rich Dunbar on Jun 14, 2005
    based on 28 ratings

    This sermon identifies four attributes worth admiration in Paul and Barnabas. These same attributes ought to be present in us as fathers.

    Admiration is an interesting thing. The dictionary defines it as “a feeling of pleasure, wonder and approval”. I think that most men want their children to admire them in one sense or another. I mean I want my children to take pleasure in me as their father, I want them to have a sense of wonder more

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Jun 6, 2005
    based on 10 ratings

    Despite the growing opposition to the gospel, Paul and Barnabas never stopped preachign the gospel, even at therisk of their lives. They also give a good example of mission strategy.

    If you were here two weeks ago you’ll remember how, when Paul and Barnabas got to Pisidian Antioch they first went to the synagogue to speak about Jesus as the promised Messiah, but then when their message was rejected by the Jews they turned to the Gentiles. And the Gentiles gladly received this more

    GOd used Paul and Barnabas’ disagreement over John Mark to expand the work of the gospel. In his sovereignty he can even use our weaknesses to further his ends.

    By Camille Lang Have you noticed the world and people in it are just … well, out of control? A life lived seems messy … even off the rails at times…. However it seems to me that today people seem to be showing even less tolerance … more impatience and more anger and I seem to be coming more

  • Benefits Of Controversy

    Contributed by Paul Fritz on Oct 18, 2000
    based on 50 ratings

    The Spirit taught Paul and Barnabas how controversy may produce many benefits for individuals and the church. When some believing Pharisees said, "It is necessary to circumcise the Gentiles and to direct them to observe the Law of Moses."

    Illustration: Paul wrote, "My grace is sufficient for you. Therefore I rejoice in weakness, in insults, and hardships. So that your faith does not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God." (2 Cor. 12:9,10) Illustration: Lord, deliver me from the lust of vindicating myself. more

  • Builders Or Wreckers? Series

    Contributed by Matthew Street on Oct 13, 2006
    based on 2 ratings

    Are we like Paul and Barnabas builders in God’s Kingdom or are we more concerned about doing things in the way they have always been done with the result that we like the Jews miss the new things that God is doing and become wreckers rather than builders

    Building something up is so much harder than tearing it down. We only need to think about the last time we had some redevelopment work done on our house to know that this is true. It takes no time to knock out those old windows or that old kitchen but it takes much longer to replace them. Gerald more

  • The Principles Of God

    Contributed by Jon Mackinney on Aug 23, 2006
    based on 6 ratings

    We can learn a great deal from the way Paul and Barnabas went into a dark world with the light of the gospel. And things really haven’t changed all that much. People are still people, and they still need the gospel.

    Passage: Acts 14:8-20 Intro: When New Tribes Missions goes into a new area, they have a plan. 1. it involves the missionaries living among the people, in order to demonstrate the unique life of the follower of Jesus Christ. 2. it involves learning the language and the culture of the people they more
