WEEK 3 - The First Martyr and New Apostle

Messiah has a wonderful history of sharing the gospel with all people. We know there is no one who is too far gone that they can’t be saved by God’s grace. One of best examples of that is St. Paul. When we first meet Paul, he is referred to as Saul, and he is the man at whose feet the members of the Sanhedrin lay their cloaks before they stone Stephen.

            From this first introduction Paul goes from being a bystander, to being the head of the persecution against Christians. He was so energetic in his persecution that in Acts 22 he says, “I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death…”

            If the Lord can change a heart like that, there is no one he can’t change. It is for that reason, St. Paul went out into the world to share the saving grace of the Savior. And it is for that same reason that Messiah continues that work in our present day.
