Saul Becomes Paul, Lies Become Truth – Word Of Encouragement
Philippians 3:10-11 KJV 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.
Paul did not always see Jesus as someone worthy to be known. Paul came from a background filled with honorary heritage. He followed the law and trusted in his own righteousness. Also, he had great accomplishments under his belt at a young age (Galatians 1:14, Philippians 3:7-9). So he knew and understood who Jesus claimed to be. He considered Jesus claims to be heresy. This caused him to hunt and kill believers (Acts 9:1-2).
But that all changed when he had a face to face with Christ. The facts, or external, of this encounter can be found in Acts 9. What we find in Philippians 3 is what happened on the inside of Paul.
