My Hero, Paul

Have you ever felt like God would not pick you to do anything important because you have been too "bad"?  I have...many times.  When it comes to "bad", it didn't get much worse than Paul.  He worked 24/7 trying to persecute Christians.  He was even there when the first Christian Martyr was stoned to death: Stephen.  Paul was, simply put, a thug!

We all know the story.  God spoke to Paul while he was on the road to Damascus ( which by the way, Paul was on his way to persecute even more Christians).  The Bible documents that after Paul realized it was God talking to him, he instantly did a complete 180.  Now, instead of being against God, he was for God.  And the amazing part is that he never even asked Jesus for help.  God chose Paul!Paul studied long and hard to be able to go out and teach others about Christ.  Isn't our Lord amazing?  If God can turn a complete thug around for the better, He certainly can turn you or me around.  There is no sin that any of us could have committed that is bigger than the Power of God's love and forgiveness.  Ask Him to "turn you around" today.

Psalm 94:11 says, "The Lord knows the thoughts of man; he knows that they are futile."

Father, turn me to you and please use me to further your Kingdom, according to your perfect will.
