This morning we find our new believer, Saul (or 'Paul' as he soon will be) completely alone and cut off in this world. His former friends are his bitterest enemies. The Christian brothers don't trust him at all. he is the ultimate 'outsider'. Does that strike a chord? And yet he could be more safely 'in' if he tried.

"The Lord said to him: 'Arise and go to the street called 'Straight' and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for--behold!--he prays!" Acts 9:11 NKJV Could it possibly be a coincidence? That this greatest conversion of all time--Saul the 'Destroyer' kneeling before Jesus!--should happen on 'Straight Street', of all places! Praise God! Goodness knows, the man has been on 'Crooked' long enough! Isn't it marvelous how our Savior works!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA   From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"...he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying: 'Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting me?'" Acts 9: 4 It has to be one of the most dramatic moments in all the B ib le: the complete overthrow of a wicked man. Saul, the great persecutor, was the 'ravenous wolf' from the Tribe of Benjamin, prophesied by Jacob some 2000 years before. (Gen 49: 27). But hang on! He is just about to become a 'lamb'!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God
