v1 “you know what I was like…”
This is a great “before and after” Jesus story. Paul is a changed man. Before Christ he persecuted the church, after Christ he discovered Jesus had a plan to use him to preach “the very faith he tried to destroy”. The evidence of his faith is in his changed life.
My life is changed and being changed by Jesus. After being at the “Following Jesus, Fishing for people” course this week, I am reflecting on how following Jesus has changed my life. I need to be able to tell others what is different in my life because of Christ. I want to be able to share the good things that knowing, loving and trusting Jesus brings to my life. Hope when things seem hopeless, peace when the storm is raging, direction when I don’t know where to go, a community of faith to belong to and love and be loved by.
Thank you for changing my life in so many ways Jesus. As I reflect on what you have done and continue to do in me – show me the parts of “our” story that will help my friends see you.
