What a lovely story today,
Lord Jesus of Barnabas
who was sent by the Apostles
from Jerusalem to Antioch
to check on the growing number
of Your followers who were
called for the first time as "Christians";
what is most touching in this story,
dear Jesus is when Barnabas 
went to Tarsus to look for Saul,
Your former persecutor,
their former enemy:

And when he had found him he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the Church and taught a large number of people, and it was in Antioch that the disciples were first called Christians (Acts 11:26).

Surely it was not simply because
they believed in You, O Jesus,
that they were called Christians;
most likely because they have lived
truly like You, Lord,
imitators of the Christ who 
truly cared for one another
by forgiving those who have sinned,
and most likely too,
truly loving their enemies
like Saul;
I pray, dear Lord, for those
who truly love and care for me,
for those who look for me,
for those who check on me
how life has been going on,
for those who stay with me
to guide me back to You, Jesus.
Grant me the grace, Lord Jesus,
like Barnabas to look for those
we have forgotten,
those we take for granted,
those who annoy us,
those we can easily dismiss
as nonsense and ordinary,
those who have hurt us,
those we hate;
grant us the courage to let 
Your voice lead us Lord Jesus
to other Sauls of this world
so we may lead them to You
to find life in You.
Amen.
