Jesus Acts First: 

Today we are reflecting on Acts 9:1-19, the story of Saul’s encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. Saul didn’t’ want to believe in Jesus, yet Jesus has chosen him to proclaim Jesus’ name to the Gentiles. There is a comfort knowing that Jesus chooses us and never lets us go.
