A New Name for a New Man

paul

Acts 13:9
Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, . . .

He was educated at the highest levels in both law and theology.
He was an international traveler,
aware and sophisticated in the ways of the world.
A young leader with all the right connections,
he was climbing the career ladder at a rapid pace.
Devout
Respected
Even feared.
But he was a man at war with himself.
He was Saul.

On his wat to Damascus, a trip where he planned to strike a violent blow against this new branch of the Jewish faith what was spreading like wildfire he encountered the risen Christ.He was struck blind and jesus spoke to hime in an audible voice: “Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?” Acts 22:7

From that moment, ther persecutor became a preacher:
the man who was roiling inside with turmoil came to inner peace.
Saul was remaned by God Himself and became Paul.
Meeting the risen Lord chanes everything.
from ~~ A Daybook of Grace

2Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ,
he is a new creature:
old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
