Sermon: ‘Jesus makes His persecutor His preacher’
Text: Acts 9:1‐31
1. The persecutor meets the One he persecuted (9:1‐9)2. The persecutor assisted by an uneasy evangelist (9:10‐19a)3. The persecutor becomes the persecuted (9:19b‐25)4. The persecutor joins the church he persecuted (9:26‐31)
Big idea (theme): God triumphs over the rage of his persecutor, converting Saul to be Paul, His apostle to the Gentiles.
