What’s in Your Bag?
In Acts 9 we are introduced to two very interesting men. Saul of Tarsus and Ananias. Because of the faithfulness of one man, another man’s life was changed. The common component that is expressed so beautifully in the lives of these two men is the Lord Jesus Christ.
How would your life change if you truly played to an audience of one? If every day you woke up and said to God, “What would you have me do for you today?”Certainly your sense of ego and rivalry would fade because you would no longer need to worry about proving yourself to other people. Concentration would instead be on pleasing God, and by living in such a way that would attract people to Jesus and His style of life.
In this two-part study we learn that someday every knee will bow before Jesus Christ and we will be held accountable for what we did with the gift of life. It’s who you serve that makes all the difference not only in the world, but the world to come. The transformation of Saul and the obedience of Ananias provide a wonderful illustration for us and set an example that’s worthy to follow.
