“Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch. Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord. For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord. Then departed Barnabas to Tarsus, for to seek Saul: And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch” (Acts 11:22-26).
Today’s Morsel: If someone were to ask you why are you a Christian, what would you tell them? It’s surprising that many people who say that they a Christian do not know why they are. The word Christian means to be a believer and follower of Christ. Not only in the good times, but also in the not so good. To be a true follower of someone means that you believe in them. So, if we say that we are a follower of Christ, where is He taking you?
Sing: Where He leads me, I will follow. Where He leads me, I will follow. Where He leads me, I will follow, I’ll go with Him, with Him, all the way.
