Today´s Sermon

2014.03.23                                            Acts 9:1- 22
                  From Enemy to Advocate
Paul was the most important missionary, theologian, evangelist and pastor in the early church……
He was everything that a Christian should be…..
This morning we will begin the story of the conversion of this man...... Paul is proof that God can take  the worst of the worst….. and transform them for His Glory…. No one is unredeemable….. No one is beyond the grace of God!
Remember…. Saul was present at the Stoning of Stephen….. The explosion of Christianity moved Saul to persecute the church….. He worked against the Gospel with such anger and hatred…. That the Greek says that he was like a wild animal….
Saul was certain that these followers of Jesus were heretics….  Beginning with Stephen…. Saul went on to persecute Christians wherever he could find them…. He could not counter the Christian’s words of life….  so he tried to shut them up…
I think Stephen's ministry had a big part in convicting Saul of his sin….  and later Stephen´s death and Words of Live….. were used by God to transform this radical Pharisee into a genuine believer..….
At the age 13  he was sent to Jerusalem….and he sat under the great teacher Gamaliel……  Gamaliel was the Teachers teacher…. He was highly esteemed….
During  his study he would have  memorized  great portions of the Old Testament…. He knew the scriptures very well and was very zealous for the law….
After the death of Stephen… Saul began to do everything in his power to destroy the church…. ….. Years later he talked about this in Acts 26:9-11…..
 Acts 26: 9-11                                   NKJV
9 “Indeed, I myself thought I must do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. 10 This I also did in Jerusalem, and many of the saints I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I cast my vote against them. 11 And I punished them often in every synagogue and compelled them to blaspheme; and being exceedingly enraged against them, I persecuted them even to foreign cities.
Acts 26: 9-11                                  Sch 2000 
 9 Ich habe zwar auch gemeint, ich müßte gegen den Namen Jesu, des Nazareners viel Feindseliges verüben,
10 was ich auch in Jerusalem tat; und viele der Heiligen ließ ich ins Gefängnis schließen, wozu ich von den obersten Priestern die Vollmacht empfangen hatte, und wenn sie getötet werden sollten, gab ich die Stimme dazu.
11 Und in allen Synagogen wollte ich sie oft durch Strafen zur Lästerung zwingen, und über die Maßen wütend gegen sie, verfolgte ich sie sogar bis in die auswärtigen Städte.
Paul a very great enemy of the believers and we see that he tried to force them to Blaspheme…. He even voted as a member of the Sanhedrin to put them to death….v10b
V10b  but when they were put to death I cast my vote against them,"
10b  und wenn sie getötet werden sollten, gab ich die Stimme dazu.
He chased them everywhere… Then he met Jesus… Turn with me to Acts 9:1..
 Acts 9: 1-2           NKJV    Sch 2000
1 Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2 and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
1 Saulus aber, der noch Drohung und Mord schnaubte gegen die Jünger des Herrn, ging zum Hohenpriester
2 und erbat sich von ihm Briefe nach Damaskus an die Synagogen, in der Absicht, wenn er irgendwelche Anhänger des Wege fände, ob Männer oder Frauen, sie gebunden nach Jerusalem zu führen.
verse 1 "And Saul, still," or yet, "breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest."
Saul was totally consumed with destroying the Christians…   When he discovered that there were Christians in Damascus….In these early days of the church…. The genuine believers met in the Temple and in the Synagogues….. Later when Paul went to minister to the Christians on his missionary journeys…. He always went  the synagogues….. Christianity began in the synagogues as they heard and received the Gospel…..
Damascus  was the capital city of Syria…. and it was very old…... There were many Synagogues there and the Word of God had spread to them as well …. Ananias was probably the leader of the church there in Damascus…
Notice  in verse 2….. That It says that he was looking for any of "this way." The  phrase The Way was used as an early description of Christians….
Jesus said, " I am The way, the truth and the life."
Christianity is the way…... There's only one way to God, and it's through Jesus Christ…..  
Saul wanted to bring the believers back to Jerusalem so that they could be tried….  And convicted of blasphemy before the Sanhedrin….. So he went to Damascus to catch them and bring them back…. It normally took about six days to get to Damascus…  so it was a pretty long trip….. Well, on that sixth day…..  , something fantastic happened….. the conversion of Saul of Tarsus…… Verse 3…
Acts 9: 3,4                            NKJV  
3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. 4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
Acts 9: 3,4                            NKJV    Sch 2000
3 Als er aber hinzog, begab es sich, daß er sich Damaskus näherte; und plötzlich umstrahlte ihn ein Licht vom Himmel.
4 Und er fiel auf die Erde und hörte eine Stimme, die zu ihm sprach: Saul! Saul! Warum verfolgst du mich?
Here we see the Lord in His grace reaching out to Saul…  Saul falls to the ground…. Blinded by the light…. V4…. Why are you persecuting me….V5…. Who are you LORD? I am Jesus….
The Lord began a work in Saul in an instant…. He burst into Saul´s life….. What a miracle……. What a revelation…… Jesus is the Messiah…. His is truly risen from the dead….. He is LORD….…… The Lord Himself had to start this process…. He always starts the process of making Himself real to unbelievers…. because the natural man cannot understand God…... He can't know God…..    
Here is a very important point….  God is absolutely sovereign in salvation……   People do not naturally seek God…… We do not seek Him…..
We seek happiness, health, wealth…… The perfect life… The perfect wife… That´s why the false teachers of these last days offer these very things to us…. Things of this world  that we very naturally want…. The false prosperity Gospel really offers us to world…. It tells us that we are in control and we can have anything we want…. We can command God to give us to health and wealth that we want and deserve….. What a bunch of lies….  Jesus offers us something much more precious than money….. Jesus offers forgiveness…. Mercy… grace….. Salvation….. All of these truly precious things from the cross…. And…
Jesus offers us our very own cross….. In Luke 9: 23…. Jesus says….. if any man will come after me….. Let him deny himself and take up His cross and follow me….
The greatest miracle that God does for anyone…. Is to cause him to realize that he's a sinner and desperately needs forgiveness…… The greatest blessing that has ever happened to me is when God shined the light of His Word into my heart…. He showed me the Lord Jesus Christ….. Over the millennia….. God has revealed Himself to uncounted millions in and through His word….. It is what the Holy Spirit uses to grab hold of hateful rebels like me and you…. Let´s look at the next verses…. V 4
Acts 9: 4-6                                     NKJV  
4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
Acts 9: 4-6                                   Sch2000
4 Und er fiel auf die Erde und hörte eine Stimme, die zu ihm sprach: Saul! Saul! Warum verfolgst du mich?
5 Er aber sagte: Wer bist du, Herr? Der Herr aber sprach: Ich bin Jesus, den du verfolgst. Es wird dir schwer werden, gegen den Stachel auszuschlagen!
6 Da sprach er mit Zittern und Schrecken: Herr, was willst du, daß ich tun soll? Und der Herr antwortete ihm: Steh auf und geh in die Stadt hinein, so wird man dir sagen, was du tun sollst!
v4… When someone finds salvation…… It beigns with genuine repentance because of the conviction of sin…… Sin separates us from God….. Our sinfulness has to be brought to light so that we see it for what it is and repent…. Saul is convicted of his sin in the most dramatic way…. A blinding light from The Lord Jesus face….!...
Saul is on the ground trembling and hears Jesus speak to Him…. 'Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?'"
Can you imagine the guilt that Saul was living with?
Saul had been living with a horrible conflict….. Believing he was doing right in persecuting Christians…… They were heretics after all….  Yet deep down he was being convicted of his anger and hatred….. I´m sure that he fought with himself and argued in his mind…. Maybe they were not heretics,,,, Maybe it was all true…… After all….. Jesus had so many followers…. Even some of the Sanhedrin and many of the priests believed that Jesus was truly the Messiah….. Saul was very zealous for God….. But he was suppressing( holding down) his nagging conscious….. But now It was no longer possible to insist on the lies that he had been telling himself….. Jesus is really the Messiah… That meant that he was guilty of murdering God´s people without a cause….
That´s why we read in verse 5… "It's hard for you to kick against the goads." Saul…. You've been fighting God, and it doesn't come easy." When he heard Jesus talk to him and say, "Why are you persecuting Me?" Can you imagine his sorrow and shame  as he realized what he had done… ? He hated Jesus…
Remember back in John 15:25, when Jesus says, "They hated Me without a cause." That had been true of Saul and it cut him to the heart…
Many of the events of this day show up in Paul testimony in the years to come…… They also show up in his teaching about the Body of Christ….. For example when Paul explains the body of Christ….. and us as Members in Ephesians…   This is Saul's first exposure to the spiritual unity of Christians with Jesus Christ their Lord…… We are one in Jesus Christ….. He is our great High Priest…. He truly bore our grief and sorrow…..
 How wonderful to know that we are bound together with Jesus…. Indeed with all the members of His body…. so that whatever hits us…. hits Him…... Jesus feels every blow….. He hurts from every insult that is ever hurled at us….
Saul had been attacking Jesus Himself….. He was ashamed….. And now he says…. LORD…
v 6… LORD what do you want me to do?...
Saul is calling Jesus LORD…. Jesus Who he had been certain was a false prophet and a heretic….. ? LORD what do I do now?
verse 7….
Acts9: 7-9                                    NKJV
7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one. 8 Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank. 
Acts9: 7-9                                      Sch 2000
7 Die Männer aber, die mit ihm reisten, standen sprachlos da, denn sie hörten zwar die Stimme, sahen aber niemand.
8 Da stand Saulus von der Erde auf; doch obgleich seine Augen geöffnet waren, sah er niemand. Sie leiteten ihn aber an der Hand und führten ihn nach Damaskus.
9 Und er konnte drei Tage lang nicht sehen und aß nicht und trank nicht.
The others were shocked….   They heard a voice….. but they couldn't see anyone……. The light was absolutely blinding……  Saul was knocked off of His horse….. He gets up and sees nothing…. He is blind… The Lord said go to Damascus and you will be told what you must do….verse 9….. 3 days without sight…. Welding accident…. Back to the text… Acts 9….v 10
Acts 9: 10- 16                            NKJV
10 Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.”And he said, “Here I am, Lord.”
11 So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. 12 And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”
13 Then Ananias answered, “Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem. 14 And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all who call on Your name.”
15 But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. 16 For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake.”
Acts 9: 10- 16                      Sch 2000
10 Es war aber in Damaskus ein Jünger namens Ananias. Zu diesem sprach der Herr in einem Gesicht: Ananias! Er sprach: Hier bin ich, Herr!
11 Der Herr sprach zu ihm: Steh auf und geh in die Gasse, die man »die Gerade« nennt, und frage im Haus des Judas nach einem [Mann] namens Saulus von Tarsus. Denn siehe, er betet;
12 und er hat in einem Gesicht einen Mann namens Ananias gesehen, der hereinkam und ihm die Hand auflegte, damit er wieder sehend werde.
13 Da antwortete Ananias: Herr, ich habe von vielen über diesen Mann gehört, wieviel Böses er deinen Heiligen in Jerusalem zugefügt hat.
14 Und hier hat er Vollmacht von den obersten Priestern, alle, die deinen Namen anrufen, gefangenzunehmen!
15 Aber der Herr sprach zu ihm: Geh hin, denn dieser ist mir ein auserwähltes Werkzeug, um meinen Namen vor Heiden und Könige und vor die Kinder Israels zu tragen!
16 Denn ich werde ihm zeigen, wieviel er leiden muß um meines Namens willen.
v10,11   Ananias go to Saul…. He is praying….. Of course he´s praying…. In an instant His entire religious world ….His life has been turned upside down…. He is talking to the Lord Jesus…. He´s repenting of his pride and rebellion….. He´s seeking forgiveness… He´s seeking the Lord Jesus….. The Lord tells Ananias to go….. Saul has seen a vision… and you´re in it…. You are going to pray for him to receive his sight….. …
v13,14… Ananias says…. Lord I have heard of this man….. He kills Christians…… I hear that he is here to get us…
v15,16… Go!...  He is a chosen vessel…. Before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel…… I will show him what great things he must suffer….. This is an awesome change in the life of Saul…… Now instead of killing Christians…. He is going to be a chosen vessel for the Lord Jesus….?
In a way he is taking Stephen´s place on the front lines….. He will become the leader of the Christian battle for the souls of men and women….
Let´s continue…. Acts 9….v17…
Acts 9: 17- 22                                NKJV
17 And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.
19 So when he had received food, he was strengthened. Then Saul spent some days with the disciples at Damascus.
20 Immediately he preached the Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God.
21 Then all who heard were amazed, and said, “Is this not he who destroyed those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and has come here for that purpose, so that he might bring them bound to the chief priests?”
22 But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.
Acts 9: 17- 22                                Sch 2000
17 Da ging Ananias hin und trat in das Haus; und er legte ihm die Hände auf und sprach: Bruder Saul, der Herr hat mich gesandt, Jesus, der dir erschienen ist auf der Straße, die du herkamst, damit du wieder sehend wirst und erfüllt wirst mit dem Heiligen Geist!
18 Und sogleich fiel es wie Schuppen von seinen Augen, und er konnte augenblicklich wieder sehen und stand auf und ließ sich taufen;
19 und er nahm Speise zu sich und kam zu Kräften. Und Saulus war etliche Tage bei den Jüngern in Damaskus.
20 Und sogleich verkündigte er in den Synagogen Christus, daß dieser der Sohn Gottes ist.
21 Aber alle, die ihn hörten, staunten und sprachen: Ist das nicht der, welcher in Jerusalem die verfolgte, die diesen Namen anrufen, und der dazu hierher gekommen war, um sie gebunden zu den obersten Priestern zu führen?
22 Saulus aber wurde noch mehr gestärkt und beunruhigte die Juden, die in Damaskus wohnten, indem er bewies, daß dieser der Christus ist.
v17 Ananias says… Brother Saul? This one who's been furiously killing Christians? "The Lord, even Jesus," watch this, "that appeared unto thee in the way." Ananias knows that Jesus was there…… and appeared to Saul….
He saw the glorified Christ….. You see, he believed that Jesus was dead…... He believed the whole thing was a big joke…... He believed Jesus was dead….. All of a sudden, he saw Him…….
This is fantastic….  Listen….  Who was the last guy to see the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ? It was Stephen…… He said, "Look  I see the Son of God standing at the right hand of the Father……
And everybody who was there heard Stephen say it….   Of What  grace to realize that Saul who was  standing there…..  He was partly responsible for the stoning of Stephen….. Now because of the grace of God…. Saul is the next one to see His glory…… That's how grace operates…..
Incredible blessings to the least deserving of people…. People like me and you…
Remember Stephen's prayer? "Lord, lay not this sin to their charge."
God heard that prayer…..  and God was gracious to Saul….. The heavens are opened again and this killer  Saul…… gazes into the face of Jesus…. He sees the Glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ……  What grace, that Saul saw Jesus…… Fantastic……
Salvation always begins with God´s  sovereign contact….. This a big part of the doctrine of election…… It´s the sovereignty of God….. reaching out to the sinner…… That´s what we see everywhere we look when we study the History of redemption…… God´s grave poured out to sinful people… It has always been by grace through faith…. It has always been God saving us…. Even though we didn´t deserve it….. We studied this recently when we looked at Ezekiel 36…..
Ezekiel 36: 22, 25-27                       NLT
22 “Therefore, give the people of Israel this message from the Sovereign Lord: I am bringing you back, but not because you deserve it. I am doing it to protect my holy name, on which you brought shame while you were scattered among the nations.
25 “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. 26 And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you so that you will follow my decrees and be careful to obey my regulations.
Ezekiel 36: 22, 25-27                       Neues Leben
22 Deshalb sag zum Volk der Israeliten: `So spricht Gott, der Herr: Ich mache das nicht euretwegen, Volk der Israeliten, sondern für meinen heiligen Namen, den ihr bei den Völkern, zu denen ihr gekommen seid, entweiht habt.
25 Dann gieße ich reines Wasser über euch aus, und ihr werdet rein sein. Von allen euren Unreinheiten und von allen euren Götzen werde ich euch reinigen.
26 Und ich werde euch ein neues Herz geben und euch einen neuen Geist schenken. Ich werde das Herz aus Stein aus eurem Körper nehmen und euch ein Herz aus Fleisch geben.
27 Und ich werde euch meinen Geist geben, damit ihr nach meinem Gesetz lebt und meine Gebote bewahrt und euch danach richtet.
5 times in these verses…. God tells us what He will do….. All for His great names sake…. I will…. Iwill…. God transforming us…. Paul was totally transformed by his encounter with Jesus….. Back to Acts 9…v20…
Acts 9: 20- 22                             NKJV
20 Immediately he preached the Christ in the synagogues, that He is the Son of God.
21 Then all who heard were amazed, and said, “Is this not he who destroyed those who called on this name in Jerusalem, and has come here for that purpose, so that he might bring them bound to the chief priests?”
22 But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who dwelt in Damascus, proving that this Jesus is the Christ.
Acts 9: 20- 22                             Sch 2000
20 Und sogleich verkündigte er in den Synagogen Christus, daß dieser der Sohn Gottes ist.
21 Aber alle, die ihn hörten, staunten und sprachen: Ist das nicht der, welcher in Jerusalem die verfolgte, die diesen Namen anrufen, und der dazu hierher gekommen war, um sie gebunden zu den obersten Priestern zu führen?
22 Saulus aber wurde noch mehr gestärkt und beunruhigte die Juden, die in Damaskus wohnten, indem er bewies, daß dieser der Christus ist.  
v20 And Saul immediately proclaimed the Good News… Jesus is the Messiah…. He is the Son of God… Saul´s life was totally transformed …
Paul's conversion experience changed his whole life…. and It transformed his Theology from works righteousness to Salvation by the grace of God…..  through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ…. . He speaks of his three times…… in Acts chapters 9, 22 and 26…… He also mentions three times in his letters that he was once a blasphemer…… and a persecutor and a violent man…… who persecuted and tried to destroy the church of God……. That is why he said  he was the least of the apostles……
v21 they were amazed at the change in Saul´s attitude toward Jesus…. And there in the Synagogues…
v22 he proved that Jesus was the Christ….
If you're here this morning and you are a sinner….. You are lost…..  If you die and go to hell, it'll be because you refused to repent and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord……
Jesus…. Do you know Him……. If not…. Today is the day….. cry out to him…. He will forgive you and wash away your sins…. Do not harden you heart…. Today is the day of Salvation….. repent of your sins and come to Him….
I know that many here are already believers….. Paul knew there was only one thing that was needful in his life…… obedience….. "What wilt Thou have me to do?" That's the   question a Christian needs to   ask the Lord every day of his life….. "What do You want me to do?"
This is the goal for every Christian……. We all need to stop doing what we want….  what I want, what I desire, what my ambition dictates, and do what He wants me to do…… Over time we discover that the will of God is good…..  and exactly what we need to find genuine Happiness in our Christian walk…. Paul discovered that truth…. He never forgot that day when he met Jesus… Blindly light and instant clearity to his heart and mind….
Paul said that the Love of God is shown to us in the face of Jesus…
2 Corinthians 4: 6                           NKJV   Sch 2000
6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
6 Denn Gott, der dem Licht gebot, aus der Finsternis hervorzuleuchten, er hat es auch in unseren Herzen licht werden lassen, damit wir erleuchtet werden mit der Erkenntnis der Herrlichkeit Gottes im Angesicht Jesu Christi.
This verse was written by Paul….. It shows us what a great Bible scholar and Theologian he was…. Paul is Quoting part of Genesis 1…  the account of Creation here…. This is the place where Rabbinical scholars say we see the first mention of the Messiah…..  They teach that the Spirit of God moving on the face of the waters….. was the Spirit of the Messiah and that the light was the Messiah…..  The Rabbis taught that the Aramaic word Nehora, 'light'… is one of the secret names of the Messiah….. It appears in several places as a title of the Messiah… Especially in the Gospel of John we see a contrast made  between light and darkness….. Good and evil…. Jesus is the light of the World…
When Jesus stood up in the Temple and said….. I am the light of the world……. The leaders of Israel knew that he was saying…. I am the Messiah… We all know John 3:16…. I´m going to begin there and read a few more verses….. Notice what John says about salvation and the Light of the World in verse 19….
John 3: 16- 21                          NKJV
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 3: 16- 21                          Sch 2000
16 Denn so sehr hat Gott die Welt geliebt, daß er seinen eingeborenen Sohn gab, damit jeder, der an ihn glaubt, nicht verlorengeht, sondern ewiges Leben hat.
17 Denn Gott hat seinen Sohn nicht in die Welt gesandt, damit er die Welt richte, sondern damit die Welt durch ihn gerettet werde.
18 Wer an ihn glaubt, wird nicht gerichtet; wer aber nicht glaubt, der ist schon gerichtet, weil er nicht an den Namen des eingeborenen Sohnes Gottes geglaubt hat.
19 Darin aber besteht das Gericht, daß das Licht in die Welt gekommen ist, und die Menschen liebten die Finsternis mehr als das Licht; denn ihre Werke waren böse.
20 Denn jeder, der Böses tut, haßt das Licht und kommt nicht zum Licht, damit seine Werke nicht aufgedeckt werden.
21 Wer aber die Wahrheit tut, der kommt zum Licht, damit seine Werke offenbar werden, daß sie in Gott getan sind.
Salvation happens in an instant…. but it takes a life time to understand what it really means….  Saul spent the rest of his life serving and teaching the body of Christ…. What a trophy of the Grace of God he is….
Praise God for this man…. On the road to Damascus…. One of the greatest scenes in history has just passed our eyes……
In the coming weeks we will get to follow him as the Lord shows him what great things he must suffer….. As he spends time walking in the Light…. He will teach all of us to better know our great God and Savior … the Lord Jesus Christ….
Let's pray.
