Has God ever called you to do something crazy? So crazy that those around you are pretty sure that you have lost your mind?
In Acts 9:10-16 we are introduced to a man by the name of Ananias. Earlier in Acts 9 we see that Saul from Tarsus meets Jesus on the road to Damascus, a road which was to lead him to persecute and execute Christians. In that encounter, Saul comes to know who Jesus is. And later, in verses 10-16, we see God telling Ananias to go and talk with Saul.
