Osama bin Laden. Mohamed Alta. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Saul of Tarsus. These men all have one thing in common. Terrorism. One of them became a follower of Jesus and the most influential person in the church for the past two thousand years. Saul of Tarsus is best known as the apostle Paul.
While carrying documents that gave him the authority to terrorize followers of Jesus, Saul met the risen Christ on the road to Damascus (Acts 9). Blinded by the light of God’s Shekinah glory, Saul saw his own spiritual blindness for the first time. Repentance and a glorious conversion followed.
If Jesus can transform a terrorist like Saul, what can He do in your life?
