Salvation Even for Saul…
The dirt and filth that is our lives that we attempt to hide from Our Father can not be hidden, it is fully known. The various mask we wear to show the world “all is well” when our heart continues to harden and the blood in our veins becomes that of bio-sludge. Most people haven’t murdered people for their faith. Most people haven’t traveled from village to village seeking those people of a faith that we disagree looking to end their lives. As we attempt to hide our fears, our guilt and pain from God, He already knows them all. Jesus knows exactly what we have done and He loves us and sees each one of us as the greatest gift He has ever created. If Jesus can stop Saul, literally, in his tracks and tell him that He loves him and wants him, Saul, to spread the gospel why can’t He do the same for us? When Jesus pulled me from the fire He did not do so to allow me to be a failure.
Romans 9 NKJV
1 Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
2 and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
3 As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.
4 Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
5 And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
7 And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one.
8 Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus.
9 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.
