Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17

1And Saul was there, giving approval to his death….3But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.
Acts 7:1, 3

20At once [Saul] began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. 21All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?” 22Yet Saul grew more and more powerful and baffled the Jews living in Damascus by proving that Jesus is the Christ.
Acts 9:20-22

In searching for a headline, I originally had “God Changes People.” I decided that the word “changes” isn’t nearly strong enough. We are not simply changed, we are transformed by the overwhelming power and presence of God in our lives.

God transformed Saul from Christian-hater to lover-of-God.

He’s done the same for me.

He’d love to do the same for you!

They key? Humility & obedience. Sure, Saul didn’t have much humility at the beginning – God had to knock him off his horse and blind him to teach him humility. Don’t resist God as Saul did. Seek Him humbly, be obedient to what He reveals to you, and He will transform your life. You can count on it! No. You can count on Him.
