But the Lord said, “Go, for Saul is my chosen instrument to take my message to the Gentiles and to kings, as well as to the people of Israel. And I will show him how much he must suffer for my name’s sake.”Acts 9:15-16
A Chosen Instrument
Paul was God’s chosen disciple. It is almost unthinkable to think about how God could have chosen a man like Paul, especially for those who knew His former life. Paul hated Christians and persecuted them. He was so bound by traditions and His former beliefs. When God came to him on the road to Damascus, He completely changed His life. This is because God had a plan for Paul. He was God’s chosen instrument to take the message to the world.
You are God’s chosen instrument as well. He wants you to submit to His will like Paul did so you can also serve Him and take His message to the world. It will not always be easy, but it will be so rewarding!
A Prayer to Remember
You have chosen me to be your servant. I know that you want me to submit to your will and your ways so that you can use me. May I be like Paul and carry your Word to the nations! Amen.
