• Today, many people wear bracelets that say "WWJD" which stands for, "What Would Jesus Do?"
  • Today, Christians are pursuing temporal (temporary) rather than eternal things.
  • Many don't have a clue that Jesus Christ is calling their life.
  • Luke 9:48: Remember that we treat Christ the way we treat others.

  • Acts 9:1-6: Consider the story of when Saul, a great Christian persecutor, was confronted by Jesus.
  • God has not saved you to be idle--to watch others serve while you do nothing. When you go to church, a man of God (usually the pastor who preaches the Word of God) will direct you to greater learning and responsibility within the church.

  • So in summary, Paul (formerly Saul) did what we do today. Follow our own ambitions, make the Lord angry with us, be confronted by the Lord (usually in prayer during a time of personal crisis), be filled with the Lord, be baptized, and follow what the commands the Lord would have you do (ideally). Be filled with the Holy Spirit, follow obediently, suffer for witnessing, grow in spiritual strength.

  • One year, this church's pastor saved only two souls in one whole year! Then the pastor got down on his knees and sincerely asked, "Lord, what would You have me to do?" And since he submitted to the Lord, things have only gotten better.
