WOAT(worst of all time) vs GOAT (greatest of all time)


But even Paul was not beyond the grace of God!!  Even Paul’s life was changed for good when he was met by Jesus on the road to Damascus.  Even Paul was called to do a “new” work for the Lord and Paul gave his total life to following Christ and in following him changed our world forever.  We look at the dedication of Paul and it causes us to marvel at the extreme change that took place.  So when you read 2 Corinthians 12:9 as written by this same Paul it MEANS  something…..It means everything!! Here is what it says. And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.  Paul was a man who walked with God and felt the full hammer blow of God’s grace and it changed him forever.  Even with all evidence that God’s’ hand was on him in a mighty way Paul still gave all praise and honor to Christ.  Wow!!

There is a great truth found in the realization that without Christ we are nothing, but because of Christ we can do all things in total freedom.  Our past sins are forgiven and all is made new and focused on Jesus Christ and His will.  You are no different than Paul.  When I realized that I was a sinner per the scripture in Romans 3:23 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,  I knew I was in trouble and I needed a Savior to step in for me and Jesus did just that.  His grace was made complete in my life and the rest is history.  It wasn’t necessarily for the specific sins I had committed that caused me to see I needed Christ, but it was the condition of my sinful life that made me feel like I was the WOAT and I needed help.  I turned to Christ and His great forgiveness freed me from the penalty of sin and redirected my life,  Praise God!!!  In my life He took someone who wanted to be a singing star from the time he was 10 years old.  Who studied music for one reason; to be a professional singer.  He took that person and redirected my life for His purposes and now my life is “full on” for Christ.  I am still singing, but just singing His praises.

Do you want to experience this freedom I am talking about that radically changed Paul’s life?  If you do, then come to Jesus and admit you are a sinner and repent and trust in Him by faith and your new life will begin.  Paul’s radical transformation is no different than what God will do with your life if you will just turn it over to Him.  He is waiting and all you need to do is realize you are WOAT and God is the GOAT and line up with Him.

The Pilgrimage continues…..

Have you ever been around people that are always looking to point out your faults and they use little trite, out-of-context scriptures to pound on you? It is becoming more of a practice in our world

Acts 9:10-11 Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” And the Lord said to him, “Rise and go to the street calle
