Saul had at least heard of the miracles that surrounded the church as well as the preaching of Jesus’ followers, but still did not believe. God needed to make a bold move to capture his attention. Even before Saul trusts Jesus, God says Saul will take his message even further, to those who are not Jews. The one persecuting others becomes the one persecuted.
We may have those in our lives whom we can’t imagine coming to Jesus. God may have a plan that is unavoidable for that person. Don’t ever give up on anyone!
