Today’s reading: Acts 9:3-6
Asking the right question
We read in Acts 9:3-6:
3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. 4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”
Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”
There were two questions Paul asked:
First: Who are You, Lord?
All of us started out not knowing who God and Yahshua are. It is quite interesting to note that no one can tell us who God is unless it has been revealed to us.
We can know science. We can understand how the world works. We can know how to create technological breakthroughs.
However, by ourselves, we really can’t figure out who God is and we can’t simply find the answer anywhere except the inspired Word of the Most High.
Paul’s initial reaction was to know who was speaking to him.
Now that he got the answer, he asked another question:
Lord, what do You want me to do?
Once we know who God is, we must then know what His will and purpose are for us. When we accept Yahshua, it is not our will that should be done. It is no longer what we want but what God wants in our lives.
All too often, people ask for God’s will but they don’t follow through. They may already know what they need to do but they won’t do it because of a lack of faith and willingness to obey.
However, as Christ’s followers, we are called to do the will of God. May we have the courage and strength to fulfill God’s purpose in our lives.
