On the road to Damascus we see one of the greatest conversions and transformations recorded in the Scriptures. Saul who threatened, persecuted and murdered disciples of the Lord was converted to (Paul) one the most power vessels of honor and glory for His Lord Jesus Christ.
This is more then a story of transformation, it is a story of the great mercy and redemptive power of Jesus.
It is recorded that all greatly feared Saul for they "had heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to God's holy people in Jerusalem." (Acts 9:13)
But God, rich in mercy who remembers our sins no more, as far as the east is from the west, does not keep a records of wrongs yet He proclaims...
"This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel.” (Acts 9:15)
Paul encountered the great mercy of His Lord, the love of His Savior and here his crooked path became straight...God met him, God chose him, God showed him grace, God showed him mercy and all marveled at the glory of God!
