A chosen instrument (Acts 9)

It’s easy, sometimes, to read something God has said in scripture, and think, “This could never apply to me.”

I think that’s definitely true for verse 15 in this chapter. Here, God says to Ananias, “This man (Saul) is my chosen instrument to take my name to Gentiles, kings, and Israelites.”

As much as God said that about Paul, he says that about you. You are his chosen instrument to take his name to the people around you. The question is, “Do you believe it?”

Too many Christians don’t, and that’s why they prefer to leave ministry (especially sharing the gospel) to the “professionals.”

It’s probably also why so many Christians don’t spend much time reading God’s word and praying.

How much would your life change if you really believed that God said of you, “You are my chosen instrument”?
