Acts: Life In The Spirit
Arrested by Love
Acts 9:1-19

Jesus wants to get a hold of our lives as well, and that is what I’d like to talk about today.

I. Busted!
Not only had he not been helping the God of Israel, but he had been persecuting His Messiah, Jesus.

Saul saw the light and was busted for fighting against Jesus and resisting His grace.

II. Arraigned!
So, when Jesus indicted Saul on multiple counts of Divine assault (persecuting Jesus by persecuting Christians), Saul begins to realize how far he has missed God.

III. Tried!
Until we call on the Lord, we are in the same place Saul was in: guilty of the death of Jesus!

IV. Sentenced!
Saul was not only sentenced to death, however. He is also sentenced to life in Christ’s service.

V. Restored!
The Lord breathed life into the soul of a man who had become hard and distant from God.
