Acts 9:10-19

ANANIAS WELCOMES AND BAPTIZES SAUL

“The Lord said to him, ‘Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying”. Acts 9:11, NIV.

Every believer is made for mission. The word mission comes from the Latin word for “sending”. It means being a Christian includes being sent into the world as a representative of Jesus Christ. Ananias, in our passage for today, was sensitive enough to know where God needed him. Saul had been a major threat to the Church, persecuting anyone that identified with Christ. He was on his way to Damascus on the same mission when he encountered Jesus and became blind. But God needed to use Saul for great exploits among Gentiles and so he needed someone to pray for him to restore his sight (Acts 9:15). Ananias was available for this assignment though not without reservation because of what he had heard about Saul (Acts 9:13). Nevertheless, he obeyed the Lord (Acts 9:17).
In the same way, you are to be on mission for the Lord. God wants you to have both a ministry in the Body of Christ and a mission in the world. Your ministry is your service to believers, and your mission is your service to unbelievers. Remember, we are to follow after the footsteps of Jesus. So, it is our responsibility as believers to seek for the poor, the blind, and the prisoners and extend the love and mercy of God to them.
