Acts 9:1-2

Saul, still breathing murderous threats against the disciples of the Lord,
went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, that, if he should find any men or women who belonged to the Way, he might bring them back to Jerusalem in chains.

The man named Saul brought fear into the heart of any follower of Jesus. He would have been looked upon much the same as we look upon a terrorist today. Saul did reign terror down upon the followers of “the Way” as the first Christians were known.

So who did God select as a very special spokesman for following the way of Christ?

Saul!

Clearly, God does not choose us based on our own merit!

As you may have heard, God does not call the qualified. God qualifies the called.

Or as Saul went on to say after his conversion when he became known as Paul, “God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise, and God chose the weak of the world to shame the strong, and God chose the lowly and despised of the world, those who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who are something, so that no human being might boast before God” (1 Corinthians 1:27-29).

So perhaps we should not be so quick to judge someone as “unredeemable.”

Everyone…including you and me…can change.

Do not judge others…but allow God’s unconditional Love to change hearts…including yours and mine.
