Acts 4:36 ” Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means Son of Encouragement)…”

Barnabas not only had the spiritual gift of encouragement, but the nickname also.  His mission and focus in life was to comfort and encourage others.  Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit as our Comforter…our Paraclete.  Someone who comes up along side as a intercessor, advocate, encourager, and exhorter.  To be a Barnabas, we need to be a Paraclete to others.
