When we first glimpse the apostle Paul in the Bible he was called Saul – and his mission in life was to stamp out the Christian faith. But all that changed when he met the risen Lord Jesus Christ on the road to Damascus.
What made him change? First, he became absolutely convinced that the Gospel was true. Jesus Christ was no imposter; He was the risen Son of God, sent from Heaven to save us from our sins.
He began to see people the way God sees them. He now saw them in their lostness and confusion – and also as those for whom Christ died.
So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view.
