This is Paul’s story.
“I was near Damascus. All at once, about noon, I saw a bright light from heaven shining around me. I fell to the ground. A voice said to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you work so hard against me?’
I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’
He said to me, ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, the One you are working against.’
Those who were with me saw the light. But they did not hear Him speaking to me.
I asked, ‘Lord, what should I do?’ The Lord said to me, ‘Get up! Go to Damascus. You will be told what to do there.’
“I could not see because of the bright light. Those with me had to lead me by the hand until we came to Damascus. Ananias lived there. He obeyed the Law and was respected by all the Jews. He came and stood near me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’
At once I was able to see him. Then Ananias said, ‘The God of our fathers chose you to know what He wants done. He chose you to see Jesus Christ, the One Right with God, and to hear His voice. You are to tell all men what you have seen and heard. What are you waiting for? Get up! Be baptized. Have your sins washed away by calling on His name.’(Acts 22:6-15, NIV)
Have you told your story or written it out for your children to know and carry into future generations? Or do you even have a salvation story yet? Here is how to get one.
Let’s Pray- Dear Lord Jesus, I do believe that you are the Son of God and that you died on the cross to pay the price for my sin. I believe that you rose from the dead and that you are alive right now.
Please come into my life. Forgive my sin. Make me a member of your family.
I now turn from going my own way. I want you to be the center of my life.
Thanks for your gift of eternal life and for your Holy Spirit who has come to live in me. Amen.
