Kieran Carr | Galatians 1:10-24
Many Christians were not born Christians. They had some sort of experience or growth that led them to faith in Christ. The apostle Paul was not born a Christian either. Far from it! He admits that in his earlier life he "persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it" (Gal 1:13). But then God intervened in his life and revealed the person of Jesus to Paul. After that he was never the same. Today we read the amazing story of how Paul began as a Christian and was called to preach the gospel.
