MUSING – April 28 2018


Acts 9:1-6
Saul kept threatening to murder the Lord’s disciples. He went to the chief priest  and asked him to write letters of authorization to the synagogue leaders in the city of Damascus. Saul wanted to arrest any man or woman who followed the way of Christ and imprison them in Jerusalem.  As Saul was coming near the city of Damascus, a light from heaven suddenly flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting me?” Saul asked, “Who are you, sir?” The person replied, “I’m Jesus, the one you’re persecuting.  Get up! Go into the city, and you’ll be told what you should do.”


    The conversion story of Saul to Paul has always donated me. Saul was a devout Jew. A religious man s so protective of his beliefs that he was willing to kill those whom he judged to be wrong. He thought he was doing God’s will. And then he met Jesus.

    Jesus changes everything. He always has and always will be the agent of change.* Some people’s lives are changed dramatically like Saul/Paul while some are just a slight course correction.

    Perhaps you were raised in a Christian home and have believed in Jesus from an early age and have always accepted him as your lord and saviour. Or maybe like Saul you needed to be knocked down so that you had to look up, be blinded so that you could see.

    What is your conversion story? How is your life different than it was or could have been? Have you shared your story with others? Have you shared the good news with others?


*John 1:3 and Hebrews 13:8
