RE Verse reading–Acts 9:1-22, 26-28 (day two) “Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized. . .and he regained his strength” (vs 18-19) I have been ungrateful. Today I see, with fresh insight, how (appearing to Saul 2000 years ago) Christ was giving a gift to us all. No person, apart from Christ Himself, has had more influence on the world. What we believe, what we think, God was shaping on that eventful Damascus day. Paul will later write 13 of the letters of the New Testament. Through him, the church will understand her missional purpose and her moral imperative. God’s mercy to Saul was His mercy to us! No isolated or private experience, by touching one life, God’s purpose was to touch many. The same principle is at work today. If Saul’s miracle is ours, then all of God’s blessings to us are also intended for others. We cannot be selfish or silent.
