Chosen & Changed – The Conversion of Saul

 

        Text:  Acts 9:1-31

 

Saul : Before Christ --  Acts 9:1-2

      An enemy of the church

      Threats and murder against the disciples

      Intentional persecution

      Seeking out Christians to persecute

 

Saul : Encountered by Christ  --  Acts 9:3-9

      A blinding flash of light

      A voice speaking

      The voice was Jesus

      Others heard the voice too, but saw no one

      Saul spent three days in Damascus blind and fasting

 

Saul : Chosen by Christ  -- Acts 9:10-19a

      God sent Ananias to Saul

      God tells Ananias that He has chosen Saul

      Ananias finds Saul and restores his sight

      Saul regains his sight and is baptized

 

Saul : Changed by Christ – Acts 9:19b-22

      Saul remained in Damascus several days

      Saul began proclaiming Jesus as the Son of God

      Saul continues to increase in (spiritual) strength

      He confounded the Jews by proving Jesus is the Christ

 

Saul : Living for Christ – Acts 9:23-31

      Jews plot to take Saul’s life

      Saul escapes

      Saul travels to Jerusalem but is shunned by others

      He is accepted when befriended by Barnabas

      Saul persists in speaking boldly for the Lord

      The church continued to increase

 

Your Journey : Your Story

 

      Your life before Christ                    In bondage to sin

      Finding out about Christ                Hearing the gospel

      Chosen by Christ                            Experiencing salvation

      Changed by Christ                          Indwelling of the Spirit

      Living for Christ                              Surrendered to Serve

 

 

          Do you persist in speaking boldly for the Lord
