Seeing All Things New
April 15, 2021
As world continues to change by becoming more post-Christian and adapting to a post-pandemic world, the church finds itself in a period where change is the new normal. For this season, we are looking at the book of Acts to remind ourselves how the early church followed God as God led the church into the future that was unfolding before them.
One of the most well known stories in the book of Acts is the story of Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. It’s no wonder that this story of a persecutor of the church becoming one of its most effective missionaries is well loved. But at the heart of this story is the resurrection. The resurrection of Jesus is a precursor to Saul’s conversion. Just as Jesus died on the cross, Saul died on the road to Damascus. Just as Jesus rose from dead, Paul rose from Saul’s past.
