Acts 9:10-19 (Acts 9:10-19)Tim Douglass, February 11, 2018
Part of the Other series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We are stepping away from Hebrews for a bit today because we are sending Rick and Stephanie out from Monitor Bible Church as Village Missionaries and this Sunday is something of a commissioning ceremony for them. When God calls people into ministry (or to any type of service for Him) He frequently sets us up with open doors and then leaves us to get to work on it, it’s not generally just all handed to you miraculously. Rick and Stephanie have put in a tremendous amount of hard work and the church has stepped up to help them as they have prepared. We are going to take a look at some of the ways that God prepared the apostle Paul to be a missionary and how other believers helped with that process.

10And there was a certain disciple at Damascus, named Ananias; and to him said the Lord in a vision, Ananias. And he said, Behold, I am here, Lord. 11And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the street which is called Straight, and inquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, behold, he prayeth, 12And hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in, and putting his hand on him, that he might receive his sight. 13Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: 14And here he hath authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on thy name. 15But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: 16For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake. 17And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost. 18And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized. 19And when he had received meat, he was strengthened. Then was Saul certain days with the disciples which were at Damascus. (KJV)
