Who Sent Whom? | Acts 13.2-4


While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.

So, being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they went down to Seleucia; and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
Acts 13.2-4

Nice. I love that.

  2. Those are some of my favorite moments in scripture; we’re given one sentence, and then a clarifying sentence that redefines what came before in a very meaningful way. One of my favorites is Revelation 4:8-10:

    “And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,

    “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty,
    who was and is and is to come!”

    And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives forever and ever.”

    So, *whenever* the living creatures give glory, the twenty-four elders fall down and worship him. And when do the living creatures give glory? “they *never* cease to say…”

    Brilliant.
