Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

So, being sent on their way by the church, they passed through Phoenicia and Samaria, describing the conversion of the Gentiles; and they caused great joy to all the brethren. – Acts 15:3

Paul and Barnabas had an urgent mission. They were on their way to Jerusalem to settle a doctrinal debate, and the fate of the church at Antioch rested on the outcome! But they weren’t in too much of a hurry to stop and minister as they passed through every place on their way, causing “…great joy to all the brethren” (v 3).

Everywhere the apostles went was a ministry opportunity! Yes, they had somewhere to be; but they were never in such a rush that they didn’t have time to stop for the lost!

Yes, you have things to do. Sure, you’re in a rush! But do you make time to stop and share the Gospel on your way? Everywhere you go is an opportunity to share the grace of God. Don’t miss it!


Father, make me a (wo)man of holy leisure. Help me to live my life in such a way that I always have time to stop and share the Gospel with those who need to hear the Good News. I am never in too much of a rush to see souls saved, in Jesus’ name!
