As seen in the city of Antioch in Acts 11, God often uses unnamed people to achieve striking expansions of Christianity. Alistair Begg looks to Barnabas’s response to God’s call to Antioch as that of one who embraced unrecognized obedience. In our own areas of ministry, we too must respond to God with humility, obedience, and praise, knowing that the Holy Spirit alone enables us to elevate God’s name above all others.
19Now those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except Jews.
