Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!
And Saul approved of their killing him.
Acts chapter 7 details the message preached by the “DEACON” known as Stephen. Immediately following his message, the members of the Jewish ruling body known as the Sanhedrin stoned Stephen. While he was being stoned to death, Jewish witnesses laid their garments at the feet of a young Jewish “LAWYER” named Saul. He was a zealous member of the Sanhedrin, and a persecutor of Christians. In fact, he even approved of the killing of the “DEACON.”
Saul was a religious zealot. Radical, sold out, over-the-top, into it, or however you want to describe him, Saul was an “ALL IN” kind of person. Shortly after Stephen’s death, Christ converted Saul on the “Road to Damascus.” After that, he was “ALL IN” for Jesus. “Anybody Can Get Saved!” It took the death of Stephen to reap the harvest of Saul. Saul, like Jacob, had a name change. He’s better known as Paul. To be more specific, he’s known as “Paul The Apostle.” He authored 13 of the 27 books of the New Testament, which has endured for over 2,000 years. Today, that Word has produced over 2 billion souls for Christ in this generation!! If we are willing to lay our very lives down for the sake of Jesus, then no one is out of Jesus’ reach. In time, Paul also laid his life down for Christ. Who is more important, the “DEACON” or the “LAWYER?” That’s a MOOT question. The truth is … “Anybody Can Get Saved!”
I’m so glad that “Anybody Can Get Saved!” Most of all I’m thankful that I’m one of the “Anybody’s!” Amen
