Son of Encouragement

Acts 4:36And Joses, who was also named Barnabas by the apostles (which is translated Son of Encouragement), a Levite of the country of Cyprus,

Acts 11:23 AMP … When he[Barnabas] arrived and saw what grace (favor) God was bestowing upon them, he was full of joy; and he continuously exhorted (warned, urged, and encouraged) them all to cleave unto and remain faithful to and devoted to the Lord with [resolute and steady] purpose of heart.

Barnabas is translated son of encouragement

Encouragement is much more than comfort or consolation.
It also exhorts, admonishes, warns and urges
—>All to cleave/cling to and remain faithful to the Lord with fully devoted hearts.

We need to do the same, especially as we see the Day approaching!

Hebrews 10:25Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage[admonish,warn and urge] one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
