Third Sunday of Easter, 2010 – Acts 9:17-20

Acts 9:17-20So Ananias went and entered the house. He laid his hands on Saul and said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on your way here, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and his sight was restored. Then he got up and was baptized, and after taking some food, he regained his strength. For several days he was with the disciples in Damascus, and immediately he began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “He is the Son of God.”

Paul suffered from a real blindness brought on, in part, by his spiritual blindness. I think most of us suffer from spiritual blindness to varying degrees at different times in our life. While most of us won’t meet Jesus in such a dramatic way in this life, my prayer is that each of us will sense God’s presence in palpable ways.

Prayer: Steadfast God, help us sense your presence as we journey on our own roads to Damascus. AMEN.
