“I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.””

‭‭Acts‬ ‭9:16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Saul would leave a promising future in Judaism, no doubt one with many creature comforts and power, to follow Christ. Being chosen to play such a critical role in reaching the nations for Christ was going to prove to be filled with great suffering, just as the Christ followers before him had already suffered greatly at Saul’s own hands. Saul was willing to do endure this because, ultimately, his greatest desire all along, even in the midst of his misguided torture of those he considered to be blasphemers, was to please God. Those who follow Christ should not be surprised when life does not turn out as expected, when they are passed up for promotions, when health takes a detour. We are not promised a smooth and easy path. We are promised He will always be with us.🚦
