Acts 9

August 13, 2011

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

    V9:3-6
    Interesting that Saul asked…"Who are you, Lord"? After his dramatic experience.

    I appeciate being 'stopped in my tracks'when my Lord speaks.
    Such peace when we stop, listen and obey.

  3. Saul's question is quite amazing – who are you Lord? He genuinely thought he was doing God's work yet he was completely wrong.

    However when we have a heart for God he will speak into our lives – sometimes in dramatic ways.

  5. v.40 Reminded me of the time Jesus healed the young girl (Matthew 9:25) and sent everyone out of the room.

    Copying Jesus is always a good idea!

  7. I really like v.31

    "Then the church throughout… enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened and encouraged by the Holy Spirit"

    Praise God for seasons of peace where we can be strengthened and encouraged for the things that are ahead.

  9. v.22 Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Messiah.

    Saul was saved and filled with the Spirit yet he grew more and more powerful. Being saved and filled with the Spirit isn't the end but rather the beginning of learning in a whole new realm.

  11. v.13 “Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem."

    Some versions say, "your saints in Jerusalem". Saints were not considered to be extra holy. Just ordinary believers, like you and me.
