But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared unto you for this purpose, to make you a servant and a witness both of these things which you have seen, and of those things in which I will appear unto you; Delivering you from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send you, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them who are sanctified by faith that is in me. Acts 26:16-18
What a challenging word! Some will say, Ah, that was Paul’s commission, not ours.
But it’s our commission as well.
Note, the first point is to open their blinded eyes, by the Word of God, sent by God’s Spirit speaking thru US. Jesus tells Paul that he is the instrument He will use to do this, by saying that Paul will do it. Paul is authorized and commissioned to be an instrument of God.
Second point: ….Turning them from darkness to light, and from the power of satan unto God... Let’s be aware of this next time we preach or share the Gospel, that the issue is about them turning from darkness to light.
