God uses man to reach and raise others

Paul, the apostle, had a spectacular encounter with Jesus in his conversion to the Lord. One interesting thing we learn here is that, Jesus did not lay hands on him to receive his healing or to be filled with the Holy Ghost. Jesus used Ananias to do this.

Acts 9:10-12 , 17 (NKJV)

Now there was a certain disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and to him the Lord said in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying. And in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him, so that he might receive his sight.”

And Ananias went his way and entered the house; and laying his hands on him he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, he has sent me that you may receive your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.”

God uses man to raise and reach others. We see further, that the Holy Spirit used Barnabas to introduce Paul to the believers in Jerusalem.

My aunt who had shared the gospel with me, and further, my husband Pas. Donald, always encouraged me to grow stronger in the Lord.

Jesus beautifully handled every individual; When the Samaritan woman asked Jesus for the water which satisfied, Jesus asked her to go and bring her husband. Isn’t it interesting?

John 4:16 NKJV

“Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.”
