A zealous persecutor of Christians became a martyr for his love of Jesus Christ. A man who was present at and assisted in the martyrdom of Saint Stephen went on to join Stephen in the ranks of those who gave their very lives for Christ. Saul of Tarsus became Paul the Apostle.
How boundless is God’s love and mercy that He reached out to one so far from His grace! And He continues to reach out to us all, those who are close and those who are far just the same. His love is so truly unconditional that He will always welcome us home.
