Miraculous...or Routine?

today's reading.
Acts 9:32    Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda...

think about it.
What does the power of Christ do through Peter in Lydda (9:32-34)? In Joppa (9:36-43)? What is God doing in Cornelius (10:1-8)? How does the Lord test Peter's obedience and understanding (10:9-16)? How has He tested your obedience?

the blog.
Who would have ever thought that Saul--the great persecutor of Christians, the man who watched and condoned the stoning of Stephen, the raving fanatic who drug Christian men and women off to prison--would (or could) ever be saved?

I love the account of Saul's conversion. It is truly a vivid reminder of God's unconditional love and forgiveness, and that even though we've sinned big time, we're not beyond God's saving grace. (Thank you, Lord! We love You!!)

So what's your conversion story? Drop us a quick note, maybe even a short novel (just kidding) and tell us about it. How you came to know Christ is IMPORTANT and it's also one of the best ways to let others know about Jesus and what having a personal relationship with the Lord means to you. Tami W.

P.S. If you want to see my salvation story, it's posted on the P4 blog page to start off our conversion stories for the day. Hope you can check it out…and leave your story while you're there too!
