The Holy Spirit and Faith

"Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent out Barnabas to go as far as Antioch. When he came and had seen the grace of God, he was glad, and encouraged them all that with purpose of heart they should continue with the Lord. For he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord" (Acts 11:22-24). There were a few good men mentioned in the Bible and Barnabas was one of them. But what makes a man good (of benefit to others)? We can usually identify a "good man" by what comes out of his heart. Luke 6:45 says, "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil." Goodness is a "fruit of the Spirit" (Galatians 5:22), therefore, because Barnabas was full of the Spirit, the "fruit" of the Spirit (goodness) was manifested in his life. However, this is not what drew my attention to this scripture. It says that he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and FAITH!
