Barnabas Sermon Illustrations

Paul lived to write a great and beautiful description of a Christian man. He described that man, in the immortal accents of the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians, as having the love that "suffereth long, and is kind," that "envieth not," that "vaunteth not itself," that "seeketh not its own," that "rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth," that "beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things." When I read that beautiful chapter, that masterpiece of Paul's inspired brash, I feel sure that the model, the man that Paul had in mind, was his old friend Barnabas, the "son of consolation."
