God has done some really amazing things as Christ continued to build His early church. There have been problems, but because the church went through the problem with God’s truth and Christ’s love, those were overcome.
As Paul and Barnabas continued to disciple the believers in Antioch, a burden for the new believers in Cyprus and Asia Minor developed in Paul’s heart. These were the believers that had received Christ during their first missionary tour. He wanted to follow-up with them to see how they were doing in their relationships with Jesus.
Paul shared this burden to his partner, Barnabas. This burden Paul had to follow-up is the same burden we need for new believers in our lives. It is through the work of follow-up that the Great Commission is completely fulfilled and Christ builds His church.
