LISTEN NOW! Steve, Greg, and Pat encourage us in a discussion about increasing our hunger for God as they dive deeper into the reality of what transpired through the lives of the Apostle Paul and the disciple Peter. Their journeys enabled them to be used mightily for the Kingdom of God. Steve shares how the Holy Spirit has been leading him to change the perspective of what it means when he would ask God to see what Paul saw. Through Paul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus the light and glory of Jesus shined so brightly upon Paul, that it caused him to be blind for 3 days. Paul may have been blinded to the world, but God was showing Paul his own heart. What a revelation this must have been for Paul to encounter. Of all the persecution he had done to the church, to Jesus, yet Jesus still loved him! This revelation and perspective of who Paul was and the truth that Jesus Christ still loved him is what gave him such a powerful perspective of who Jesus Christ is. This revelation of Jesus allowed Paul to advance the Kingdom unwaveringly amidst persecution and hardship that he wrote the majority of the New Testament in the Bible from a prison cell. Amidst all the great exploits that God used Paul to do, in a letter written from prison, Paul shares his perspective: “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners- of whom I am the worst”.
