WordDigest: 5 Lessons From The 'Earthly Saul'
"But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off both men and women and put them in prison."
[Acts 8:3] NIV
When Saul had not met Jesus, he lived an earthly life.
What is an earthly life?
Per this piece an earthly life is a behavior which does not correspond to the teachings of Christ Jesus.
It could also be negative actions toward the body of Christ.
Saul in his earthly life prosecuted and murdered Christians.
He even approved of the stoning of Stephen to death.
"And Saul approved of their killing him. On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria"
Little did Saul knew one day there was going to be a transformation.
Folks we all had lived an earthly life before being born again.
And today around us we see some people live all sort of earthly lifestyles.
What are some of the lessons we can learn from this?
1. Everyone has a past life.
2. How long are you going to allow your past to hunt you?
3. Earthly life does guarantee one heaven.
4. Never compare your past life with others.
5. Your will is different from God's will.
Today forget your past and receive Christ Jesus as your Lord and personal Savior as you confess your sins to Him.
To be continued...........
Lord Jesus forgive us our sins and lead us not into temptation.
Jesus is still the Lord.
