Walking Your Personal Road June 25
Acts 26: 17-18
Delivering thee from the people, and from the gentiles, unto whom now I send thee.
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in Me.
In this verse, Jesus commissioned Saul on the road to Damascus. Saul has been dramatically called, and now he is being sent out to the Gentiles to preach the gospel. If you look at Saul’s conversion, you will notice that most of his trouble came from his people.
The number one fear of people is public speaking, but when we peel back this fear, we can see the real fear is not the public speaking but the fear of ‘Ostracization’ it means to be excluded from society.
It is especially true when it comes to Muslims who convert to Christianity. They lose everything, family, friends, and even their life. Satan used ostracization to build his empire, and he will use it against you too.
Typically, when Christians first get born again, they will face adversity from their very own well-meaning family members. They don’t understand the transfer of power.
Satan’s power is hate-based, and God’s power is Love Centered, centered on you. What does Jesus mean when he says, “and to turn them from darkness..”
The word darkness comes from the Greek word: Skotos, which means Obscurity.
Obscurity is the state of being unknown, inconspicuous, or unimportant. Just the place where the enemy wants you to be, but God wants you to be a light that all can see,
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
You are now the light in the room, and your life may be the only Bible people ever read. Would you mind not covering your light?
