So Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. For a whole year they met with the church and taught a great many people. And in Antioch the disciples were first called Christians. (Acts 11:25-26 ESV)
Потом Варнава пошел в Тарс искать Савла и, найдя его, привел в Антиохию. Целый год собирались они в церкви и учили немалое число людей, и ученики в Антиохии в первый раз стали называться Христианами. (Деяния 11:25-26 Russian)
Almighty God, our Father in heaven ~ along with other people of faith, we hallow your holy existence on your throne in heaven. Help us, Lord, to love righteous deeds in the same way Christ leads us to be doers of your enlightening word. Open the eyes of reason to many people who claim Christ as Lord, to worship and live daily as worthy of the name Christian. Slam-dunk the politically-charged efforts of those who rally followers behind denominational names instead of the name of Christ Jesus, who alone deserves our praise and devotion. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
