Two Ways Jesus Advances the Church

How is it that someone so devoted to the destruction of Christianity can become one of it’s greatest heroes?

In the account of the conversion of the Apostle Paul (aka Saul) we see how such radical transformation is possible.

But beyond Paul’s amazing about-turn, there is a faithful, Spirit-empowered disciple called Ananias who is used to bring acceptance and healing to Paul.

Today, Jesus still uses these two means to grow his church – radical transformation and Spirit-empowerment. Listen to how he does this:
