Acts 11:25-30

25 Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26 and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.

27 During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul.

One response to “Acts 11:25-30

  1. As each was able. They helped through love and each had different to give based on what they had been asked to be stewards of. Yet their obedience and love was in the gift, not the amount.

    The gifts were given to the elders for disbursement through the church to those in need. The church was used, and should be used, to meet people’s life needs and in meeting those needs show them the love and kind compassion of Christ.
