Paul was another man that was used mightily for the Kingdom. His very hands penned the majority of the New Testament. Book after book written to the churches throughout the land, he wrote from prison. How does that happen? Before Paul was Paul, he was first Saul; “a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man”, as he describes himself in 1 Timothy 1:13. When Saul was on the road to Damascus, he witnessed the brightness of Jesus that caused him to go blind. In one moment, he saw the fullness of who God is, and the fullness of who he was. He was a changed man. He had an abandoned heart.
If we believe that we are any different than Saul, we missed it. We are all lost in our sins if we are apart from Christ. There is no gray area. When we come to Christ, we are made new. If we want to do what Paul did, we must first be willing to see what Saul saw. Will we allow the Holy Spirit to reveal our own hearts to us in order for God to use us in the fullness that He desires? Allow your hunger and tenacity to search out the goodness of God to be greatly stirred and so much more.
