A Clean Slate

Many years ago I was involved in a huge scandal that received quite a bit of press. I’m not going to go into the details. You can read all about it here.

I was deeply ashamed of what I did and suffered the consequences of my actions. Yet the incident continues to haunt me.

My critics scorn me in the papers and the gossip blogs speculate on how long my new marriage will last. The constant judgment makes me wonder how God could forgive a sinner like me.

We are all sinners, but God is merciful and forgiving. He is our judge. He gave me a fresh start and He can wipe the slate clean for you too!

Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered (Psalm 32:1). 

Today’s Beauty tip –

Remember – No amount of makeup can hide an ugly spirit. For instant glowing skin, free yourself from sin!

Barnabas’s Blog

Blog Title: Son of Encouragement, or possibly, if Barnabas liked word play(and who doesn’t?) -Sun of Encouragement: Illuminating God’s Glory

About Me: I’m a Levite from Cypress. I’m not a writer; however, I find God has called me to encourage and strengthen those who would write for him. Currently, I’m on a missionary journey with my good friend, and an author I predict will be a success, Paul. (Visit his blog ‘The Road to Damascus.’)  I invite you to travel with us and spread the good news.

(I imagine Paul had over a thousand followers, while Barnabas had a few hundred. What do you think?)

Intended Audience: Writers, speakers, and followers seeking support and encouragement traveling on the path with Jesus.

Widget/Gadget: There’s a banner on the sidebar notifying readers he is available for speaking engagements. He’d possibly have this as a testimonial blurb: “At Iconium Paul and Barnabas went as usual into the Jewish synagogue. There they spoke so effectively that a great number of Jews and Greeks believed” (Acts 14:1 NIV)

Misadventures in Lystra

My friends, I have an amazing and true story for you!

Yesterday began ordinarily enough. Paul and I were walking through the town of Lystra when we came across an older gentleman. At first, we offered a polite nod in greeting, but suddenly Paul stopped and struck up a conversation. In the course of our discussion we discovered this man had been lame since birth. The sun was beating down on our necks and our throats were parched, but Paul spoke at length of the Lord. The man listened intently. It was clear he had faith.

Then Paul spoke loud enough to draw the attention of those nearby, “Stand up on your feet!” The man did not merely stand up; he jumped up and began walking!

The people gathered in amazement, but Paul and I casually continued on our way until a friendly couple offered us respite from the heat. It was while sitting in their home that a boy rushed in exclaiming, “It’s time for the sacrifices!”

Paul and I looked at each other in horror. Sacrifices! We tore at our clothes and rushed out into the streets. We had a devil of a time convincing the crowd to not make sacrifices to us.

Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you. We are bringing you good news, telling you to turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heavens and the earth and the sea and everything in them (Acts 14:15 NIV).

Eventually, we were able to convince the crowd not to make any sacrifices, but I remained skeptical as to whether we truly got through to them.
