Grace for the Chief of Sinners, part 1 (Acts 9:1-19a)

Acts Sermon Series at Elmira Christian Center

Throughout the book of Acts, Luke includes several accounts of sinners being converted to the risen Lord Jesus. Conversion is what happens when God, by his Spirit, awakens those who are spiritually dead and enables them to repent of their sins and turn to Christ in faith. Each of these stories in Acts reminds us how good and faithful God has been, how powerful the gospel of grace really is, and how we can continue to trust our Savior as he builds his church. Arguably the most famous conversion in Acts is that of Saul of Tarsus (more commonly known as Paul). In this sermon, Mitch Bedzyk proclaims that no one—not even a zealous and hateful enemy of the Lord Jesus and his church—is beyond the sovereign grace and mercy of God.
