READ: Acts 21: 37 – Acts 22
THINK: Are you a believer in Jesus Christ? Do you trust him as your Savior? If so, you too have an amazing faith story. Granted, not all of us have a vision or a blinding light or a radical conversion such as Paul’s. But we all have a story to tell and the words Ananias spoke to Paul are just as true for us. As I read them, a rush of almost overwhelming emotion stirs my heart…and I hope it will yours. We were chosen! We have a job to do! What are we waiting for?
“The God of our fathers has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words form his mouth. You will be his witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on His name.”
Acts 22:14 – 16.
Like Paul, sharing our faith stories will make a difference – both in bringing unbelievers to accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and also encouraging fellow believers to persevere in following God’s call.
