Scripture Lesson: Acts 9:10-18

On this date in 1988 Orel Hershiser pitches a four-hitter and Mickey Hatcher and Mike Davis hit two-run home runs to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-2 series clinching victory over the Oakland A’s. Hershiser became only the third player to win the MVP in both the playoffs and the World Series.

Today’s Scripture lesson gives us the story of a MVP of faith. When the apostle Paul had his experience on the Damascus Road with Jesus, giving his life to Him, he became blinded by the light of Christ. Before meeting Jesus, Paul was the chief persecutor of the early church and was on his way to Damascus to imprison Christians. But Jesus had different plans. The blinded Paul was taken into Damascus. The Lord came to a disciple named Ananias in a vision and told him where to find Paul and to go to him. Ananias reminded the Lord, as if He needed reminding, of who Saul was. Jesus told him that He had called Paul to carry His name to the Gentiles. Ananias could have refused to go, but he was obedient and went to Paul. When Ananias approached Paul and called him brother the scales fell from his eyes and he could see. Paul got up and was baptized. Ananias was a true MVP of faith by being obedient and allowing Jesus to use him!

1. Who is an MVP of faith you know? Why?
2. How can we become a MVP of faith?
3. What is Jesus calling you to do for Him?

Ananias was a MVP of faith because he was obedient and allowed Jesus to use him for His glory. Jesus is just waiting for us to follow Him and He will make us all MVP’s of faith!

At Bible Study the other night, the penny dropped! I have long been woneirdng about the Catholic understanding of suffering.It is related to our choice as Christians, to live as Christians. Our lives reflect our beliefs and no matter what lies ahead, be it pain and suffering or otherwise, we need to show our faith in our One True Shepherd. He will take care of us. He knows the reason behind the suffering. And it's our reaction to suffering (however minor) that reflects our true faith in our Wise Shepherd. It's about trust and acceptance.I think it important as Christians to remember that we do not do any converting, the Holy Spirit does. We are just conduits through which the Holy Spirit works.A meaningful post. Thank you.
