Born Joseph, a Levite, a son of Cyprus
A child of God and minister of peace
Saved by faith alone in Christ Jesus
He sold his property to help those in need
Proclaiming the gospel wherever he went
To Tarsus, to Antioch and beyond Jerusalem
Sharing with all his gift of encouragement
Only by the wondrous grace of the Son of Man
Fellow sojourner and mentor of the apostle Paul
Teaching and preaching to whomever would give ear
The Cross, the Resurrection, the One who gave all!
Let us lovingly share the Good News without fear!
“But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles and declared to them how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached boldly in the name of Jesus.” Acts 9:27 ESV
