2 Important Questions

August 26, 2014

Acts 9:5-6

And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”

Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”

Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Good Morning Men!

Some translations omit the second part of verse 5 and the first part of verse 6, this translation was copied from the NKJV, which includes this text.

I wanted to share what we covered in our Bible Study last night.

There are two important questions we all must ask in our lives, and definitely the sooner the better.

1. Who are You, Lord?

We all need to know who the Lord Jesus is. Many people throughout the Bible who are recorded as having personal experiences with Jesus Christ did not know who He really was. Some referred to Jesus as Rabbi, some as good teacher, some as teacher and some as Lord.

The reason this question is important is because, who is Jesus to you? Is Jesus only a great prophet to you? Or maybe a great teacher, or rabbi? Or maybe you know He is Lord, but is He truly Lord over your life?

This is where the second questions comes in.

2. Lord, what do you want me to do?

This is where things can get sticky for us. Matthew 19:16-22, gives us a story about a rich young ruler. This man seemed to be a “good person”, this man claimed to be following the law and the commandments. However when he asked about eternal life, the answer Jesus gave him was not what he wanted to hear. This man chose to keep Jesus as teacher rather than LORD.

In order to be able to ask the question, openly, honestly and without reservation; our hearts must be surrendered to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Is God calling you to something? This something is often not what we want, it is often out of our comfort zone and very often will take giving up something else.

Men the Lord Jesus has a plan for each of us, but He needs our submission. HE has promised us not only eternal life, to those who believe, but also a joyous victorious life here on earth.

Ask those two questions men!

    I love the description of Saul (or soon to be Paul) and how he was “trembling and astonished” in the presence of the LORD. He immediately humbled himself before the LORD and sought the LORD’s will for his life.
