Letís Fly the Flag

Persecution caused the believers to be scattered
But God allowed it so that they could spread the word.
They preached the Word with vigour, power and had favour
And many accepted the word that they had heard.
Barnabas, a man full of faith, saw the evidence
And he was moved, elated, over the moon, thrilled.

God will allow persecution, hardships, trials, opposition.
But we must see through His eyes, the goodness coming.
It is not a time to cry wolf, call a pity party, but to trust
That He who began the good work will also give good ending.
So those who oppose us may even be working for us
Because if God is for us, who can be against us?

Let us be filled with the Holy Spirit and be bold
Flying the flag, heralding the anthem of the good news
Speaking to Greek or Jew, Gentiles or foes
And the Lord will confirm His word with signs following
Great will be the harvest and there will be joy in heaven.
Surely, this is the will of God, even the Great Commission.

The Church in Antioch

19Now those who had been scattered by the persecution in connection with Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia, Cyprus and Antioch, telling the message only to Jews. 20Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus. 21The Lord's hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.

22News of this reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. 23When he arrived and saw the evidence of the grace of God, he was glad and encouraged them all to remain true to the Lord with all their hearts. 24He was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and faith, and a great number of people were brought to the Lord.

25Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, 26and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.
