2While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."
3So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.
This was the beginning of Paul's first missionary journey.
The church was involved in sending Paul and Barnabas, but it was God's plan.
It was the Holy Spirit that led them.
To SET APART means to dedicate for a speical purpose. We too should dedicate ourselves to use our time, money and talents for God's work. Ask God what he wants you to set apart for his glory.
