When we first get a glimpse of the apostle Paul he is called Saul of Tarsus- and his mission in life was to stamp out the Christian faith. But all of that changed in a flash when he encountered the Lord Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus. So what made him change? First, he became absolutely convinced that the Gospel was true. Jesus Christ was no imposter; He was the risen Son of God, sent from Heaven to save us from our sins. He began to see people the way God sees them. He now saw them in their lostness and confusion- and also as those for whom Christ died.
“So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.” – 2 Corinthians 5:16
