“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.” 1 Timothy 1:12-14 NKJV
Every disciples of Jesus were afraid of Saul who captures and prosecutes Christians. But by the grace of God, Jesus appeared and revealed himself to Saul at the road of Damascus and it changed his entire life, to become the apostle to the Gentiles, and to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. The people he once prosecuted became the ones he protects his life with. Most people don’t realise about their own negative actions till the Holy Spirit brings forth a deep reflection and convictions to change. Is there any areas in your attitude, behaviour and character which need to change? Sure there is. We all do.
Every change in our life in Christ, becomes a blessing to our love ones, marketplace, businesses, schools and home. Saul, who later named Paul became a true disciple of Jesus Christ. Nothing is impossible for God to make a change. Praise God!
To God be the glory!
