#NT75 Day 24: Acts 9-13 The beauty of a new name

Saul encounters Jesus on the road to Damascus.  Bright light.  Powerful questions.  Blinded days.  Worldview shattered.  Theology undone.  Purpose reborn.  Truth revealed.  Salvation received.

Here's the part I love.

When all that happened, Saul became Paul.  Somewhere along the way, he got a new name.  A new start.  A new life.  A new purpose.  A new future.

All of the stuff of the past was in the past.  Forgiven.  Buried.  Over.  Done.

Now he had a new name.

I don't know about you, but I'm grateful for fresh starts.
