Third Sunday of Easter, 2010 – Acts 9:1-2

We are approaching the third Sunday of Easter. The lectionary selections include: Acts 9:1-6, (7-20) (Saul’s conversion on the Road to Damascus); Psalm 30; Revelation 5:11-14 and John 21:1-19 (Jesus appearing the disciples by the Sea of Tiberius).

Acts 9:1-2Meanwhile Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any who belonged to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

As important as Saul, soon to be Paul, is to Christian thought, it is important to remember that he was a most ardent persecutor of the early Church. Consider today what God is asking you to do through your life, with both its flaws and its promises, and remember the miracle you are.

Prayer: Abundantly gracious God, as imperfect as we are, we trust your ability to use us to further your will on earth. AMEN.
