A CONVERTED LIFE 

Acts 9: 1- 30

July 12, 2009, SUN a.m.

 

Introduction:

Here we see that Saul reflects the natural man that has a life without the Savior (v.5), has a life that does not love brethren (v.1-2; 1 John 3:10), and has a life that is not right with God (v.4-5). On the other hand, Saul now becomes Paul and now we can here learn the life that is genuinely converted unto the Lord. Many are saved but not converted. Let us take a look of a converted life of Paul:

 

I- LIFE OF DOINGv.6 (not life that doing nothing)

a.  Paul is Interested—v.6 what wilt thou have me to do?”

b.  Paul is Instructedv.6 “Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do

c Paul’s initiative—v.20 “And straightway

(only motivated by the love of Christ-II Corinthians 5:14) Paul was filled by the Holy Ghost—v.17

 

II- LIFE OF DIVIDENDS

a.  Receiver of Gods blessingsv.18-19,22 (We are God’s by creation & redemption)

b.  Reaching others with the privilege to preach Christv.20, 22

c.  Reverse of the old ways of life—v.21 (from persecutor to a preacher); 1 Timothy 1:13, 15

 

III- LIFE OF DEDICATION

a.  In spite of Dangers--v. 23-24, 29,16

b.  Inspired by the Disciples--v.25-26, 30

c.  Involved in Discipleship--v.31
