The Conversion of Saint Paul, The Apostle
On January 25th we as a Church celebrate the feast of the conversion of Saint Paul. This holiday reminds us of the history of the people who met Christ and changed their lives. We can also celebrate the story of our own personal conversion to God. People change significantly when we meet the Lord or when He goes to meet the person as was the case with Saint Paul.
Finding God changes us because He calls us to change. In the case of Saint Paul, from being a persecutor, he became an apostle of Christ. Furthermore, God's grace led him to seek fellowship with other Christians. This is our experience as believers. As we grow in spiritual life we understand, more and more, that grace received is to be shared with others.
