Saul, AKA, Paul was a Roman citizen from Tarsus and a religious zealot who persecuted new religious movements. He later had an encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus and was transformed from someone who persecuted churches to being someone who planted churches. He was formerly known as Saul until this encounter when Jesus renamed him Paul and he went on to be key leader of the early church.
One night on his missionary journeys he had a vision which caused him to change his travel plans away from moving east, and to head west to Macedonia. This was a significant moment in the development of the early church as ‘the Spirit led them’ away from the Asian region towards the West and Europe.
From this moment on Paul followed the Spirit of God not the Spirit of the Age.
Lesson: Do WITH God not FOR God - stop doing stuff for God do stuff with God!
Question: What is God doing and how are you joining in?
