Paul's Calling

As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" "Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied. (Acts 9:3-6 NIV) We all have heard of the story of Paul's calling. Paul once persecuted the believers of Jesus, but he left behind this life to become the most honored instrument of God. Paul suffered from illness. In despair, he prayed to the Lord, and God replied that his grace is sufficient for Paul. No matter how insufficient and weak we may be, we can be used greatly for the establishment of God's kingdom. We hope you have been used as noble instruments of God in 2004, and that you can be a noble instrument in 2005.
