Life Without Scales

Acts 9:18 English Standard Version
And immediately something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he rose and was baptized;



The scales from Saul here representing the sinner, the carnal nature, the flesh, the pride of life, the lust of flesh, the lust of the eyes and so on. Scales representing Carnality, intellectual ability, physique, qualifications, and wealth. We carry on in life with these scales in our eyes. Refusing to see ourselves and the world through God’s eyes. Our vision is blurred by these scales.



Its unfortunate that we live with these scales disallowing us live like we should. We follow the crowd cause this scales don’t let us see beyond that. We do what everyone else does because its world ‘culture’ and who are we to break ‘em? We’re more focused on how we look so we don’t let love lead us to see the kid on the streets wearing no clothes. We are on a quest for fame, wealth and acceptance so its easy not to notice those who are on a quest for survival.



These scales blind us from what’s truly important. We can’t see behind our wants, needs and selfish desires.



When the scales of religion

Of peer pressure

Of ‘good things’ that life has to offer

Of saying there is no God

Of ignorance

Fall of, you will become a transformed person or creature or individual. This transformation entails the peace, love and joy of the Holy Ghost


Acts 9:20-22 :  and immediately he began to proclaim Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “He is the Son of God.” All those hearing him continued to be amazed, and were saying, “Is this not he who in Jerusalem destroyed those who called on this name, and who had come here for the purpose of bringing them bound before the chief priests?” But Saul kept increasing in strength and confounding the Jews who lived at Damascus by proving that this Jesus is the Christ.
