God Knows…When I Wonder if I can Change – Part 1
Remember the man who watched over the coats of the people who stoned Stephen? That man was Saul of Tarsus. Saul was greatly involved in savage activity aimed at destroying belief in Christ. He went from house to house, dragging out those who believed in Jesus and arresting them. He even made sure that some were sentenced to death.
 
This persecution of Jesus’ followers actually helped spread the good news of God’s love. It caused the Believers to scatter as they looked for places to live that were safer than Jerusalem. A number of them went to Damascus, about a week’s journey north by foot. Saul went after them.
 
At noon on the last day of the trip, Saul crested the ridge of Mount Hermon. Below lay Damascus, a beautiful white city in a green and fruitful plain.
 
Stop Sign for Saul
Suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around Saul. He and those with him fell to the ground. “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” asked a voice.
 
Saul’s companions were terrified! The brilliant light almost blinded them. They could hear the voice, but they couldn’t understand the words. But Saul could understand the words. “Who are you, Lord?” he asked. “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” came the reply.
 
Saul’s mind worked rapidly. He realized suddenly that Jesus was the promised Messiah, and now He was speaking directly to him. He remembered Stephen’s sermon and recognized the truth in it. He saw that he had been doing the work of Satan, not the work of God. It was the moment of truth.
 
“Lord, what shall I do?” asked Saul
 
“Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do,” came the answer. Until then, Saul had done what HE thought best. Now he would begin doing what CHRIST wanted him to do.
 
Saul got up. But he couldn’t see a thing. Helpless and blind, he was led by the hand into Damascus. For three days Saul remained blind. He didn’t eat or drink. But he did think! Truth was obvious, now that he opened his mind to the light of heaven. He couldn’t see, not with his eyes, and yet he could now see so clearly. He humbly confessed that he was a sinner who needed a Savior. He saw that Jesus had come to the world for that very purpose.

About Your Story Hour

Your Story Hour encourages young people to develop a strong Christian character through its dramatized radio program (English, Spanish & Russian), free Bible lessons and online magazine for kids. Exciting, inspirational and educational stories bring the Scriptures, history and everyday experiences to life.

About Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan

Hosts Aunt Carole and Uncle Dan bring their warmth and love to children around the world as they narrate exciting, dramatized stories straight from the pages of the Bible, the annals of history and the experiences of life. Your Story Hour has encouraged young people (kids, teens and the young at heart) for nearly six decades, helping them to embrace high moral principles, while at the same time enjoying storytelling at its best. Kids love to "be there" when David slays the giant, "feel the heat" as Daniel's three friends are cast into the fiery furnace, "experience the excitement" as Clara Barton risks her life to save the wounded of the Civil War, "understand the risks" as Paul Revere makes his famous ride, "feel the wonder" as an angel protects two children from a robber or God miraculously spares an honest man's family from starvation. Hundreds of wonderful stories, taken from the international radio broadcast, are available on CD (or cassette). In addition, a special, interfaith Bible course, during which children earn CDs from Your Story Hour's Life of Jesus album (26 stories), is available for kids 9 years old and older. And, starting in 2008, Clubhouse magazine will be available online free of charge!
