10/18 Acts 22

Many times when we encounter a nonbeliever who has an interest in learning more about Jesus.  We stumble for the words or we fear we don’t have enough bible knowledge to talk to them.  We think that this is a job better suited for Robin or one of the staff.  Listen to what Paul has to say when he addresses this crowd:

6“About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me. 7I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’

8” ‘Who are you, Lord?’ I asked.

” ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied. 9My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me.

10“‘What shall I do, Lord?’ I asked.
“‘Get up,’ the Lord said, ‘and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.’ 11My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me.

12“A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. 13He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him.

In this chapter Paul lays out his life story for this group of people.   Most any time you find yourself in a situation with others who are inquiring about Jesus there is a simple and easy way to talk about him to them.  Just tell them how you came to know Jesus.  Talk about what your life was like before.  How you were saved and how you are different today.  Go ahead give it a try sometime.  Leading others to Christ is a responsibility for every Christian.
