When Saul was converted to loving God, he experienced a thresh hold. A right of passage. An ever presence of the Lord himself. Saul's life revolved around bullying, intimidation, torturing and perhaps killing people who believed in God and that God was for all people. Like a mean dog. One that had been trained to attack an enemy, so was Saul. God can do anything......through Jesus we are forgiven of our sins. Saul became one of the best motivational speakers of his time as Paul.
Acts 9: 1-6 Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? Who are you, Lord?Saul asked. I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting, he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
