Saul persecuted the church. His life’s goal was to see Jesus’ followers defeated.
Then he met Jesus on Damascus Road.
Jesus didn’t call Saul a sinner, leave him to his own and tell him there wasn’t any hope.
Instead He called Saul out on his sinful lifestyle, told him He was there for him and then gave him purpose for his life.
Are you living defeated in your past mistakes? Do you wallow in the wrongs you have done and feel like there isn’t any hope?
Those feelings aren’t of The Lord.
Yes, He calls sin sin, but then he willingly forgives it. He doesn’t bring it back up to beat you down. He stretches out His hand for you to rise up in Him. He gives you a hope and a future filled with promise.
Be conscience of which voice you’re listening to. One is life. One is death.
