In Acts chapter 13 we read about the working of the Holy Spirit in the “setting apart” of Saul and Barnabas.
Being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they traveled to preach the word of God. The account in Acts provides insight to their journey including stops along the way and excerpts from the messages they spoke.
Chapter 13 ends with Paul and Barnabas speaking to both Jews and Gentiles explaining the Lord had made the Jews “a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.”
We too are called, set apart to share the good news of the Gospel.
Matthew 28:19 tells us to “go” and make disciples and gives us the assurance the Lord is with us along the journey. The same Holy Spirit that called Saul and Barnabas is the same Holy Spirit that works today in our lives, calling us to be lights for all the world.
