Imagine being in Paul’s shoes on that road to Damascus. What would you expect from the Lord if you had done what Paul did.
Certainly not what Paul received. At that moment, God’s unlimited patience toward Paul meant his salvation.
Paul wanted to be God's guy. But he missed the boat. Yet, God never deserted him or gave up on him..
At that critical moment, Jesus extended mercy. He turned this persecutor into a proclaimer of the good news.
It’s no wonder Paul began the definition of love with these immortal words: “Love is patient.”
So what were you like as a person before you trusted Jesus Christ?
Here is the good news.
God never gave up on you.
His patience toward you meant your salvation (1 Peter 3:15).
