DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Saul Begins To Proclaim Jesus
What a supernatural encounter that brought about change of focus and lifestyle! Anyone who is yet to experience that salvation that leads to total turn around in the Lord is missing a lot. After Saul’s eyes were opened, he was baptised in the Holy Spirit and had water baptism. He studied the word of God for some days to have in-depth knowledge and prepare him for soul-winning activities. He did not wait to be told to preach or shy away for fear of rejection. People who heard about his messages were convinced and convicted of their sins and surrendered their lives to Christ. How are you involved in soul-winning activities?
Point Of Emphasis: Don’t wait for a better time; the field is ripe for harvest.
Prayer Point: Oh Lord, Let the zeal for soul-winning consume me so that I will make use of every opportunity to preach Christ to sinners.
