Acts 13: 10
“You are a child of the devil and an enemy of everything that is right!
You are full of all kinds of deceit and trickery.
Will you never stop perverting the right ways of the Lord?”
Bar-Jesus people are full on lovers of people. They look for the good in everyone. They love LIFE. They are not perfect but they have a strong desire to do the right things. If they see other works that are right works they encourage them, even if those works are bigger and better than their own.
Bar-Jesus people have been filled with TRUTH. Jesus is the truth. They are not perfect but they are transparent, vulnerable, easy to understand, simple people. Behind the scenes they speak well of other people, they are promoters of those who even threaten their own position or status by their works.
Bar-Jesus people are WAY people. They have not arrived. They do not know everything nor pretend they do. They know discipleship is a journey. They experience a WAY which has many unexpected turns, but they know it is not crooked, nor do they make it so.
Bar-Jesus people are Way, Truth and Life people.
Bar-Jesus are sons and daughters of Jesus.
Elymas was actually not a Bar-Jesus person. Saul knew he was a Bar-devil person.
