Acts 22:10 “And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do.”
Once Saul confirmed that the Lord was the One giving him the orders, he was an eager volunteer. In a flash of light, Saul went from proud self-sufficiency to humble servanthood. Like Isaiah, he wasn’t concerned with the details of his assignment, because he trusted the assignor. He didn’t quibble over the directions, because he trusted the director. He didn’t hold out for a better offer, because he trusted the offeror.
Saul’s new attitude was much like the Marine Corps slogan “We don’t accept applications, only commitments.” He was committed to following the Lord, wherever the leading would take him. Saul recognized that the Lord’s direction comes with personal responsibility to faithfully follow.
American Christians need to eagerly follow the Lord’s call for personal commitment and responsibility. The Lord needs us to humbly say “What shall I do, Lord?” and then we must obediently follow whatever the answer may be. PLEASE PRAY THAT INDIVIDUAL AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD BE HUMBLY COMMITTED TO SERVICE AS THE LORD DIRECTS. Every one of us has a Damascus where the Lord will lead us. Obediently follow him there and beyond!
