What About You?

Updated: Mar 29

"But Barnabas took him, and brought him to the apostles, and declared unto

them how he had seen the Lord in the way, and that he had spoken to him, and

how he had preached boldly at Damascus in the name of Jesus." ~Acts 9:27

Has God ever opened your eyes abruptly to truth? Has he ever penetrated the darkness of your mind like a bolt of light?

One day several years ago this is what happened to our daughter Rochelle. In a letter that we found in her belongings, after she passed away, she wrote that "she was changed, (like Paul in the Bible). She had been living in sin (like Paul); but then was convicted and called by God, through His Word, insomuch that God seemingly ripped the scales from her eyes and revealed the 'self-indulgent', 'selfish', 'uncaring', and 'sinful ways' that God Himself wanted to uproot. Suddenly she recognized her sin as sin and became aware of God's patient pursuit and His call that she had been resisting for some time."

Rochelle's calling, as well as Paul's, involved both conversion and a call to minister to others in one intense encounter!  Both Paul's and Rochelle's story give hope for the most hardened hearts.

She prayed for loved ones (as we do)," asking that God would remove the scales from their eyes so they too can know, love, and serve the Lord! She said it's good to "love them into heaven, and scare them out of hellfire." If you haven't answered the call of the Lord, please, don't let It go unheeded!

As Rochelle finished her letter, she said: "Let's look at what can be done about the "now" and do it. I don't have to do it on my own anymore!"

Paul would say the same! What about you?
