Daily Devotion 4/20/15

Acts 9:1-2 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. 

Saul was determined, misdirected determination, but he was still determined to do what he believed in his heart was right. He went to the high priest, seeking permission, permission to take prisoner anyone who belonged to this “Jesus Movement.” Saul believed what they were doing was wrong, so he went after them based on the evidence that came forth through their lives. If someone accused you of being a Christian, would there be any evidence to back up this accusation? Most people have heard that question, in one form or another, before, but have they really considered its truth? Can others see Christ through your life? Do they see that your relationship with God is the most important thing present within your life? Can they see and feel the love that you have for your Savior? If they can’t, then there is definitely a problem. Saul went after those who were proven to be followers of Christ. Are you a proven follower of Christ?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become someone who is seen as Your follower.
