"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" ( 2 Cor 5:17).

Saul was one self contended man going about his life mission. Born to a family deep in Hebrew traditions and educated by the best teachers of his time, there was not a trace of doubt who he was. In fact, one thing he could not stand was those who came and shared a different way of life. When a one Stephen dared to claim that Jesus was the true Messiah, he presided over his execution. After approving (Acts 8:1); "Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison" ( vv 3).

One day as he returned from one of his murderous missions, 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?" (Acts 9:3-4). Saul lost his sight. After fasting for three days and night a man of God, Ananais, laid hands on him and he regained his sight.

That was a turning point. The once persecutor of believers in Christ would from there on be the one seeking those to convert. At once he began to preach in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests" ( vv 20-21).

The difference was that Saul had met Christ and seen his power..

Everyday there is someone on a Damascus road. And God is, just as with Saul turned Paul, revealing himself to such. For some it is a "Turning Point" yet there are those who just stumble along, regardless.

What is your turning point? Are you also just stumbling along save the fact God has revealed Himself to you! What will it take for God of the "road to Damascus" to meet you and turn your life around!

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray for that turning point in my life and any who by your grace needs it that once touched by God mine and their life is never be the same, this I pray in Jesus' name.
