“CROSSES MAKE GOOD CRUSADERS”
INTRODUCTION: In these verses we read the names of the men who were prophets and teachers in Antioch. It is a startling fact that each of these men had paid a price and borne a cross to become a follower of Christ. They had invested too much to be just nominal stragglers.

A. Manaen was raised in the royal court.
B. Manaen chose to displease a king in order to please the King.
C. We must be willing to break relations with people and places who would drag us down.
II. BARNABAS – THE CROSS OF FINANCIAL LIBERALITY.
A. Barnabas gave up his wealth and bore the cross of financial sacrifice to be on the front
line for Jesus Christ.

Luke 13: 31, 32
