I wonder how many doors had been closed in his face that day. Door knocking was probably something he never thought he’d find himself doing, but there he was faithfully visiting different homes in his neighbourhood. Little did he know that the people in the next house were searching for something; that he would be the one to lead them to Christ, and that their lives would never be the same again.
The Bible is not supposed to be just read, it is not supposed to remain black and white, it is a collection of books that are supposed to be experienced, engaged in heart, mind and soul, and acted upon. When the book of Revelation was read to the Church in 90AD they would have been on their feet cheering as Jesus returned to defeat the great Dragon. The Corinthian church would have been in tears as Paul corrected them and the Israelites would have heard the passion of the prophet Isaiah calling them to repent.
