Every Saul lives in a compound, works in an office, teaches in a school, leads a team, does a business in the marketplace, works in an office and walks pass an Ananias every passing minute and day. There is a Paul That lies in them!
That armed robber in your neighborhood, That drunkard, that smoker, that assassin you know, That political embezzler, That gambler in your compound, that thief in your office only needs Jesus. Tell Jesus to Him!
Saul was a havoc, a menace, a terror in the neighborhood. So is that unsaved soul near you, in your office, doing business with you. Many are also born again but unsaved like Saul. Saul was a PAUL many ignored until Jesus decided to encounter him. You are the Jesus nearby today. you cant tell the blessing in your neighborhood until you spread Jesus around. You cant tell the solution and wealth of safety in your neighborhood until you pray Jesus into it. You don’t know the gold mine in your compound until you share Jesus. Nothing brings a Change like Jesus. I am a living witness. I didn’t know success, victory and freedom until i began to live for Jesus, my wits and education didn’t hold earthly and eternal value until i filled my life with His dimensions. See how much was in Saul,,
-He knew the scriptures but interpreted it to suit his vanities.
-He was a leader in the church but carnal and unlike a shepherd.
-He was educated but frustrated with academic philosophy rather than renewal of his mind.
-He was a leader but a vandal and destructive tool.
-He was a team lead but without focus on true value.
-He was a professional but full of compromise with excitement. -He was energetic but committed to destiny damages.
-He was employed but wrongly engaged and empty of fulfillment.
-He was a teacher but with the wrong passion, mentality and quest.
– He was a prolific writer but he wrote for violence, skepticism, circular humor, vain entertainment and immoral incitement.
Saul had everything to change His world but lacked someone with the effrontery to share Jesus with Him. PAUL in Saul was only waiting for an encounter with Jesus.
Isn’t our community, offices, businesses, sectors, nation and world being ruined by Saul(s) that have PAUL(S) in them. God made Paul but Satan polluted Paul and made Him Saul. Every “Bad or notorious Person” you see is good but needs Jesus. Water washes clean with a detergent. The gospel is the water and the Blood Jesus shed is the detergent that changes a Saul to a Paul.
we can save our children from the mayhem that Saul carry. we can also enjoy the uncommon impact, influence and difference of Paul in our nation if only we will share the true Jesus! If you need any change, Jesus is that Change, let no one keep in deception and He is there by your side if only you will care to welcome and acknowledge Him. If you are a Saul, you can become Paul by accepting Jesus and EVERYTHING will change not your own way but His own way, Just follow His precepts in His word (The Bible)
Donot forget, you are the Ananias in the straight street nearest to that Saul (The Adulterer, Embezzler, Thief, drunkard, Gambler, Sickle cell patient, Scammer, Swindler, Prostitute, Liar, False Prophet,) in your neighborhood. You are can be the tool to unravel the Paul in Saul. That your office, desk, talent, business, compound, peer group and professional meeting is the Damascus God has provided to unearth a Paul out of Saul.
If only we can bring Paul out of Saul, we have rectified the economic anomalies of our generation.
Our community and country cant and will not witness any change until we become our brothers keeper! How? Help a Saul to see the Paul in him by showing him Jesus, tell Jesus to him and Praying Jesus for Him. This is the our duty as our brothers keeper irrespective of what we do, How we do what we do is our tool to make it happen.
