Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Do you know a new Christian? Paul and Barnabas remind us that it is difficult becoming a Christian; there are hard times for new Christians! So let's make sure we don't JUST share the Gospel with them, but let’s ALSO stand by them, check on them, strengthen them, and encourage them.

My Prayer...

Loving Father, please be with the new Christians in our church. Use me to be a source of encouragement to them and strength for them. May my life always be a positive influence on them and other new Christians as well. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
