The Good News of Jesus starts with our heart, not our circumstances. It’s when our hearts are healed that hope is alive. That’s when we can see by truth and not our experiences. Through this great exchange, we are empowered to represent God’s love to the world around us and participate in every believer’s calling to the ministry of reconciliation.
Paul is perhaps one of the most widely known apostles in the New Testament, but he didn’t start off following Jesus. Our Impact Waco Director, Jason Ramos, shared the story of Saul’s transformation to Paul. Everything changed when Paul heard God’s voice and responded, and Jason has a similar story. After years of drug addiction, violence, and incarceration, he heard God’s voice. And he didn’t just hear, he responded.
