Guest Post: Voice of the Martyrs: Modern-Day Sauls to Pauls

Be inspired by today’s stories of “Sauls” being transformed into “Pauls.”

“A racehorse can run just as fast in either direction.”
Russell S., a VOM contact in Colombia

Those who are most passionately opposed to the gospel can become the most effective in sharing Christ’s love.

New resource from Voice of the Martyrs: Saul to Paul book.

God chose Saul, a persecutor of Christians, and transformed him into a passionate preacher of the gospel who later became known as Paul. Today, God still calls out to persecutors of his children and changes them into preachers of his truth.

The angry men throwing stones at Stephen wanted a witness’s approval to kill him. So they took off their coats and dropped them at the feet of a young man named Saul, who was in agreement with the execution of the Jesus-follower.

Saul went on to lead the charge against the Jewish apostates… until he met the one he was fighting against.

“Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” Jesus asked. Saul’s life was changed. Instead of fighting against the name of Jesus, he began preaching and praying and healing in it.

God chose Saul, a persecutor of Christians, and transformed him into a passionate preacher of the gospel who later became known as Paul. Today, God still calls out to persecutors of his children and changes them into preachers of his truth.

Read the stories of seven such men in VOM’s new book, SAUL TO PAUL.

The seven men in this book tried to destroy the Bride of Christ, but they ultimately succumbed to the power of the Holy Spirit. Their stories illuminate the struggle of the persecuted church and show that our sovereign God can incline even the most hardened heart toward his own.

This book will encourage you to pray for persecuted Christians and help you view “enemies” as people who might someday be a great asset to Christ’s kingdom.
