I Timothy 1:14 “And the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.”
The good news of the gospel is that God has the power to transform lives. The list of lives changed is endless. It includes Billy Graham, Vice-President Mike Pence, Mike Lindale, and many other men and women of note.
I have seen drunks, drug pushers, murderers, adulterers, and just plain mean people give their lives to Christ, and go on to lead changed lives.
The Bible records the conversions of the maniac of Gadara, the despised tax collector and traitor to his people Matthew, blind Bartimaeus, the adulterous Samaritan woman, Zacchaeus, the Roman centurion at the crucifixion, Cornelius, and many others.
But of all the conversions ever recorded, none was more remarkable than Saul of Tarsus. This bitter enemy of the cause of Christ, in his own words the foremost of all sinners, became the greatest evangelist and theologian the world has ever seen.
He never lost the wonder of God’s Saving Grace. How about you?
Have you forgotten that wonder, that sense of peace and joy? Revisit that day your life was transformed by God’s Saving Grace.
