their God-given identity. The Apostle Paul was such a
person. As he (formerly Saul) was on his way to Damascus
where he was going to stop the Christians from preaching
the good news of Christ (The Anointed One), he had an
encounter that changed his life.
In that massive encounter, his whole life completely turned
around. He began to live for the gospel of Christ with the
same passion that he had used to fight against it. He
championed the course of the gospel in the land of the
Gentiles, planting churches and writing most of the New
Testament epistles we know today. He achieved massively
for the kingdom, perhaps more than all the other apostles.
9For I am the least of the apostles who am not
worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted
the church of God. 10But by the grace of God I am
what I am, And His grace toward me was not in
vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all,
yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
1 Corinthians 15:9-10
The secret to Paul’s massive results cannot be divorced
from the reality of that encounter on his way to Damascus.
