Saul…sometimes I think of him as an intellectual who was stubborn in his beliefs and unwavering in his convictions. He was wrong! I do not consider myself an intellectual, but I am stubborn. When I get it in my head that I’m right about something, it’s hard to change. I am so blessed that God got a hold of me and opened my eyes to the truth of His Word. Now I know I used to trust in myself to get to heaven. Saul and I have both learned that trust must be in Jesus.
Sometimes I think it is unfair that God spoke so directly to Saul to ‘open his eyes’ to the truth. There are several family members and friends I wish He would do just that for. But that is not the way He usually works. I’m sure He knows these people would not serve Him like He knew Saul would. I also know He loves them much more than I do and wants them to be with Him too.
Please read Acts 9:1-20 with your children. Help them begin to understand this story. Share how God has changed your life and help them see how He is working in theirs. Jesus does change our lives when we give Him our heart and serve Him.
