“But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.”

‭‭Acts‬ ‭9:15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Ananias’ hesitation regarding God’s instruction to go to Saul was well-founded; Saul was on his way to Damascus to arrest Christians and take them back to Jerusalem to answer to the high priest on charges of blasphemy. A devout follower of Judaism who was sure Christ was an imposter for the real Messiah yet to come, Saul no doubt had a promising future in Judaism. Why would God want Ananias to talk to a zealot like Saul? Like so many of us, this disciple pre-judged who would follow Christ and who would not. When sharing the gospel with others let us not be fooled by reputation, status or outward appearance. God instructs us to reach out to everyone.🚦
