Coming Home

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.

Saint Paul is the ultimate conversion story and a beautiful reminder that no matter what we do in our lives we can always find redemption and forgiveness in the Lord. No matter who we are or what sins we have committed, God is always calling out to us. When I have strayed and felt that God could never take me back into His arms, Saint Paul has been there to guide me home.
