This Week's Lightbulb Moment

Saul, however, was ravaging the church. He would enter house after house, drag off men and women, and put them in prison. (Acts 8:3 HCSB)

Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”  (Acts 9:4 HCSB)

The best way to get rid of an enemy?  

Do not repay anyone evil for evil...
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him; 
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning 
coals on his head."
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
(Romans 12:17, 20-21 NIV)

Ask the Lord to make them family!

“Lord,” Ananias answered, “I have heard from many people about this man, how much harm he has done to Your saints in Jerusalem.  And he has authority here from the chief priests to arrest all who call on Your name.”
But the Lord said to him, “Go! For this man is My chosen instrument to take My name to Gentiles, kings, and the Israelites.  (Acts 9:13-15 HCSB)

When he (Saul) arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to associate with the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, since they did not believe he was a disciple.  Barnabas, however, took him and brought him to the apostles and explained to them how Saul had seen the Lord on the road and that He had talked to him, and how in Damascus he had spoken boldly in the name of Jesus. (Acts 9:26-27 HCSB)
