“Suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
And he said, “Who are You, Lord? … What do You want me to do?”—Acts 9:3-6 (NKJV).
Most of us are familiar with the story of Saul, the persecutor of Christians. After being struck down on the road to Damascus, he was used by God and eventually became the apostle, Paul.
Paul discovered God’s gospel truth and God’s will for his life. He then spent the rest of his days spreading the message of the Good News and planting churches throughout the Mediterranean world.
The apostle determined God’s will for his life with one important question: “What do You want me to do, Lord?” It’s the question every one of Christ’s followers should be asking.

I wonder what would happen if all Christians began the day with, “Lord, what do you want me to do today?”
Would we see less strife in our lives? In our churches and communities? And in the world? What if we set aside our agendas and to-do-lists and checked in with our Lord each morning with that one important question?
