主題經Key Verse

10 我說:『主啊,我當做甚麼?』主說:『起來,進大馬士革去,在那裏,要將所派你做的一切事告訴你。』 12 那裏有一個人,名叫亞拿尼亞13 他來見我,站在旁邊,對我說14我們祖宗的 神揀選了你,叫你明白祂的旨意,又得見那義者,聽祂口中所出的聲音 15 因為你要將所看見的,所聽見的,對著萬人為祂作見證 16 現在你為甚麼耽延呢?起來,求告祂的名受洗,洗去你的罪』」(22:10-16)

10 So I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.’ 11 And since I could not see for the glory of that light, being led by the hand of those who were with me, I came into Damascus. 12 “Then a certain Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good testimony with all the Jews who dwelt there, 13 came to me; and he stood and said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’ And at that same hour I looked up at him. 14 Then he said, ‘The God of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth. 15 For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard. 16 And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.’ (Acts 22:10-16)
