- Read Acts 11: 19-30
It is often said that the soil of persecution brings growth and deepening for the body of Christ.
- Why do you think it works this way?
Stop now and spend some time praying for brothers and sisters around the globe that do not have the freedoms that we have and who are facing persecution daily for their faith.
- How have painful or hard situations in your own life been fertile soil for growth?
- What is some of the fruit that you’ve seen grow?
- How has the fruit that the Lord has grown in your life benefited the body here? Barnabas becomes such a blessing in Antioch!
