Word Up!: God is strong!
From the moment that Saul met Jesus on the road to Damascus, his life changed. He was so excited to know that Jesus had paid the price for his sins that he shared the good news with everybody who would listen. Not everybody in Damascus was happy to hear him tell of Jesus' sacrifice for their sins though. Many of the Jewish leaders were not happy to hear that they were sinners and they needed Jesus as their Savior. They were so angry that they made a plan to kill him. However, Saul's friends came up with a plan to lower Saul in a basket over the wall of the city. He would go on to Jerusalem and to other cities to share the good news with everyone. Although it was very difficult, God gave Saul strength and boldness to share the good news!
