Pay Attention to Jesus

In Acts, chapter 9, we read about Saul, who was later called Paul. Saul was a Jew, and he did not believe that Jesus was God’s Son. So Saul did bad things to Christians and put them in jail.

One day Saul was traveling to the city of Damascus. He hoped to find some Christians and arrest them. As he was nearing the city, he saw a very bright light. Acts 9:4-5 tells us what happened next. “He fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, ‘Saul, Saul! Why are you persecuting me?’ Saul said, “Who are you, Lord?’ The voice answered, ‘I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting.’”

Immediately Saul obeyed Jesus. He went into Damascus. There a man named Ananias helped Saul learn about Jesus. Saul was baptized and started following Jesus. He spent the rest of his life loving and serving God. That is an exciting story! Saul talked with Jesus. He was a witness to the fact that Jesus truly arose from the dead.

Jesus speaks to us today through His Word, the Bible. But someday we will live forever with Him. It will be exciting to talk to Jesus face-to-face.
I am looking forward to that time. I hope you want to see Jesus, too!
