As predicted in Acts 9, Paul not only trusted Jesus, but also became someone who convinced others to trust Jesus too. God wanted Paul to reach Gentiles with the message of Jesus. That’s not a controversy today, but until this point in Acts, almost all Christians were Jewish. The question being asked is, “Can a person become a Christian without becoming a Jew first?” Paul is able to tell stories of Gentiles trusting Jesus, and it was decided that Gentiles have the same ability to trust Jesus as Jews.
Saul had been someone who hated Christians and Gentiles. Jesus transformed him into being a Christian who loved Gentiles. How has your life been transformed by Jesus? Who has God taught you to love?
