DAILY READINGS: Judges 2:6-3:4; Isaiah 22:15-23:18; 1 Cor. 2:1-16

And they that were with me saw indeed the light, and were afraid; but they heard not the voice of him that spake to me. Acts 22:9

Paul’s first encounter with Christ was a life-changing event. Paul saw the light. But not only did he see the light, he heard the voice. He recognized it as the voice of the Lord. Those who traveled with Paul saw the light, but did not hear the voice. May our encounter with Jesus today result in our seeing the light and hearing His voice and responding: “I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision” (Acts 26:19). —D. Pickup

Open our ears, Lord, and help us to listen,
Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus. — Robert Call
