a funny thing happened on the damascus road......

you know i think God must really get a chuckle out of how stupid we are sometimes.

lets take a look at a guy named saul. now saul was a student of gamiliel (sp) and his main mission was persicution of the early christians. while on his way on the Damascus road he was blinded by a light and Christ spoke to him asking why he perseuted him. now sauls first words were " lord is it you?" for a guy who denied that Christ was the son of God the Lord must have had a really good chuckle when saul uttered these words.

a few days latter a prophet was sent to him to restore his sight both physically and spritually. his name was changed to paul and .....well....well......thats another story for another time. :mrgreen:

gotta go.....the cars are backing up the drive through window....lets see now... did he say he wanted fries with that?

Think about it, up until Soul’s blindness he thought he was doing the work of God. It wasn’t until Soul was made physically blind that he saw just how spiritually blind he really was.

Even with all that Soul had going for him including his position in the church he didn’t know God! I wonder how often we get caught up in church work, and miss the work we need to do for God :thumbsup:
