(Acts 9:10-19, 22:12-21, Jonah)

Ananias was commissioned by the Lord in a vision.

  • Rise and go to Straight Street
  • To the house of Judas
  • Look for Saul of Tarsus

Ananias has an opportunity to walk by FAITH.


The Lord said Go. (Matt. 28:18-20)

  • He is a chosen instrument-
  • You are a chosen instrument. (John 15:16,19)
  • When you have God, you have all you need to fulfill God’s call on your life! (John 15:5)

To carry the name of Jesus-

  • To Gentiles
  • To Kings
  • To Jews

From persecutor to preacher, only God can do that!

  • Ananias went-
  • Entered the house
  • Laid his hands on Saul

Ananias and Saul were witnesses to the miraculous power of Jesus through obedient humans.

Saul regains his sight.

  • Filled with the Holy Spirit
  • Was baptized
  • Began eating

Obedience is God’s love language. (John 15:14)

Obedience leads to God’s blessing. (Psalm 24:3-5)
