The apostle Paul used to persecute the Christians. Paul was shocked to find out that Jesus was the Messiah. Paul had not originally believed that Jesus was the Christ. Once he found the truth he made a radical change.
Many people think they have God figured out. When they experience the life changing grace of God they become radically different.
Paul had been dead wrong. He was not proud of his former life. Once he discovered the truth he acted on it. In Acts it says, “Soon he began to preach about Jesus in the synagogues, saying, "Jesus is the Son of God” Acts 9:20 (NCV).
If you are a Christian you should be different. Are you?
