If God Can Use Saul…

He can use you!

I had the pleasure of being a lector at daily Mass this morning and got to read one of my favorite readings – Saul’s (a.k.a St. Paul) conversion on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:1-20).

If you ever doubt that God can use you to accomplish His work, this story should make you think otherwise.  Why God chose a notorious persecutor of Christians to proclaim His message to the Gentiles is beyond my comprehension, but that’s why He’s God and I’m not!

God saw something in Saul (Paul) and chose him to become the “Apostle to the Gentiles”.  With the Lord’s help, St. Paul went on to be a great evangelist and apostle.  This all happened because Paul said “yes” to the Lord’s call.

How can God use you to accomplish His work?  That’s something you have to work out with the Lord, so I recommend you pray about it.  You might end up being surprised by your mission.  The Lord knows your talents better than you do and he may present an idea that never occurred to you before.  Don’t worry, you’re in good company…

Saul never expected to be used as an apostle and he didn’t do too bad!
