Now we begin Paul and Barnabas’ second missionary journey. But it starts with a problem: conflict. Is the overall big-picture ministry the top priority? Or are the individual people involved in the ministry the top priority? Yes. Despite the separation we know from later New Testament passages that Paul reconciled and collaborated with both Barnabas and John Mark. The journey into Europe and Philippi was a both a tremendous sacrifice and a tremendous success, all prompted by the intimate leading of the Holy Spirit, a vision from God and man’s obedience.
