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.
