Purpose in Saving Each of Us

Paul explains in Galatians 1:11-24 that he received the Gospel by revelation from Jesus Christ. Before his conversion, he persecuted Christians but after his conversion, he was the chosen instrument to proclaim the name of Jesus to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel (v. 15). God saved Paul for the purpose of spreading the Gospel message.

God also has a purpose in saving each of us and placing us where we are at this moment. By receiving instructions to the Way, we are equipped to lead others in our present circumstance and God has placed us where we are for a reason.

This day will be amazing because of who God is and who we are; an important name in history – one of His children. He gives plans to make a difference in society so that other people will glorify Him because of who we are.

He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
