St Paul’s Conversion and Divine Indwelling
In our blog we often share with you Testimonials of our brothers and sisters and their experience with Divine Indwelling.
However today’s Second Reading is of St. Paul talking about his conversion, below is a true testimonial of Divine Indwelling working within and it is right here in the Bible!
Through the revelation of the key which is Divine Indwelling we can now further understand what the Bible has been teaching us… what God has been teaching us. May we continue to find Divine Indwelling speaking to us in the Bible and allow it to teach us the secrets of the Kingdom of God.
1 Tm 1:12-17 (a paraphrase)Beloved:
I am grateful to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because he considered me trustworthy in appointing me to the ministry of sharing the Good News of his love and mercy to all.
I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and arrogant, but Our Lord treated me mercifully because I acted out of ignorance in my unbelief.
Indeed, the grace of our Lord has been abundant, along with the gifts of faith and love that Christ Jesus has graciously given to us.
This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, which include each one of us. Of these I am the foremost. But for that reason I was mercifully treated, in spite of my arrogance and pride, so that through what
happened to me, as the foremost example of His mercy and love, Christ Jesus might display all his patience as an example for those who would come to believe in Him for everlasting life.
To the king of ages, incorruptible, invisible, the only God, honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
