Stoning Stephen…Saul Giving Approval To His Death…

Yep…it says so right there in Acts 8.1, “And Saul was there giving approval to his death. Skip over to Verse two, “Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him.”  Verse 3, “But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.”

That’s quite the start for the church. And for some time Saul continued to be persecutor of the followers of the church. God caught up with Saul on the road to Damascus with letters to arrest  followers of Christ, but Jesus struck him blind, spoke to him telling him to get up and go into the city and there further instructions would be coming to him. Then, He told Ananias  to go to him. Ananias told God all he had heard about the evil doings of Saul of Tarsus. Acts 9.15, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer in my name.”  And thank goodness Saul became Paul, telling the  gentiles. Saul changed and did exactly what God asked of him.

There is a story in there for a lot of us. It tells of the power of our Lord and Savior. And we also need to listen to Him…. Paul spread the gospel story. And it is still being spread.

Yep, old Saul went from stoning Christians to spreading Christianity…Yep, Jesus got hold of him….
