DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
The Conversion Of Saul
Saul thought he was pursuing heretics, but he was persecuting Jesus himself. Anyone who persecutes believers today is also guilty of persecuting Jesus because believers are the body of Christ. As Paul travelled to Damascus with the intention of persecuting Christians there, he was confronted by the risen Christ and brought face to face with the truth of the good news. Sometimes, God breaks into a life in spectacular manner and sometimes conversion is a quiet experience, whichever way he does it, that same life can never remain the same.
Point Of Emphasis: What is your evidence of a changed life?
Prayer Point: Oh God, Let my life show forth the power and beauty of salvation.
