Tuesday Truth - You can become a Christian in an instant

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

Conversion of Saul

Acts 9:1-31

Some people think that in order to be a Christian you need to be raised in a Christian home. Or that you need to spend days, weeks, months, even years doing "Christian service" for others. Some people think that the only way you can become a Christian is if you go to church frequently. Yet, all of those things are incorrect.

The Bible shows us just how quickly a person can become a Christian. In this example, God called a person named Saul to be a follower of Christ (i.e.: a Christian). Here is the summary of the story:

  • A guy named Saul is persecuting people who are believers in Christ.
  • One day he is traveling, and a bright light shined down on him from heaven.
  • God blinded him, and said "why are you persecuting me?"
  • God sent him to a different city, where he then became a believer in Christ.
  • Saul, now going by the name Paul wrote many books of the New Testament.
  • Paul (Saul) died because he was a believer in Christ.

Isn't it wild to think that in a quick instant, this man's life was changed forever? He no longer lived the life he was living. No longer believed the things he believed. He was changed into a Christian immediately and his life was never the same.
