Who, me?

A sermon on Acts 9: 1-20

Most people want to make Saul the hero of this story. After all, he turns from being a wicked persecutor to a champion for Jesus in the end. But I always want to lift up Ananias, who goes to help Saul, at risk to his own life, just because a voice from heaven told him to. Do some of the things Jesus asks you to do sound crazy? “Love your enemy,” often comes up. “Give away all you have,” is another. Part of our job as Christians is to help one another listen for God’s calling to us — and help us do it if it’s crazy! And sometimes we listen and know that’s not what God has said to us at all.
