Day 26 - 28 Day Challenge

Captivated by God's Vision

: I couldn’t just walk away from a vision like that! I became an obedient believer on the spot.

Paul explains his incredible encounter with Jesus. How he vehemently opposed this movement of Jesus and how he was stopped dead in his tracks by him. Jesus broke into his world and hand picked him for a mission. (v16) Since then Paul's life had been captivated with the mission of Jesus, it had become the sole focus of his life and he just could not walk away from the vision of bringing Jesus message to the world.

We talk much in today's world about vision. Companies have vision statements, schools have vision statements and individuals are encouraged to write vision statements for their lives even churches have vision statements. All good to give focus to our lives and connect our day to day activity with what we want to achieve in the long term but too many times there is a disconnect between our stated vision and activity. In effect we walk away from the vision.

Paul was captivated by God's vision and was not going to walk away no matter what.
