If Barnabas and Paul could disagree and part their ways,
And both could still be serving God and giving Him their praise,
Then surely you and I can face a disagreement too,
And each proceed to do the things that we feel called to do.
The time we spent together in the service of the Lord,
Has proved we both agree on love and reverence for His Word.
And each of us, within the other’s heart has seen the flame
Of service and devotion to the Saviour’s blessed Name.
Although we two no longer toil behind a single plow,
It doesn’t mean the devil can declare the victory now.
For both of us will toil on, each in a different sphere,
And souls in need of Christ will still the Gospel message hear.
Today I’d like to reaffirm my love and prayers for you;
I pray God’s richest blessing on the work your hands will do.
In spite of disagreement that has caused our ways to part,
I love you in the Lord because I know what’s in your heart!
May God bless you as you serve Him
If there be therefore any consolation in Christ,
if any comfort of love,
if any fellowship of the Spirit,
if any bowels and mercies,
Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,
having the same love,
being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory;
but in lowliness of mind
let each esteem other better than themselves.
By this shall all men know
that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another.
