Acts 9:15 ” But the Lord said to Ananias, ‘Go! This man is My chosen instrument…”

The Believers in Damascus had heard about Saul and his murderous threats against them.  Ananias also knew Saul had traveled there with the authority from the Chief Priests to arrest them all.  So you can imagine that Ananias had many excuses as to why he shouldn’t go and lay hands on this man…but God said, “Go!”  And Ananias went.  But somewhere between his house and the house where Saul was staying Ananias had a major heart adjustment.  For when he greeted Saul,  he called him Brother Saul.  Brother meaning Saul had been accepted  into  the community of brothers and sisters in the Lord.
