Life Lessons From The Apostle Paul
Who can forget The Apostle Paul’s story. He spiritually represents in some ways all of us at one point in our walk with God. Where in our own eyes we are doing what we think is right, but God is truly not being glorified. Then on the road to Demascus, he gets knocked off “his high horse” so to speak and God finally has the chance to correct both his thinking and theology. This spiritual encounter changed Paul’s life forever and similarly our own personal encounter with Christ altered the trajectory of our faith walk.
For Paul, killing Christians was committed as an act honoring God. Though he was out to bring an end to the early Christian movement, it was motivated by reverence for the law. We can become so immersed in religious traditions that we miss the actual spiritual move of God when He causes a shift. If we are disconnected in the spirit we’ll act out of former understanding and not the “right now” word of God.
Here are some life lessons we can lean from The Apostle Paul’s spiritual conversion.
