Saul was breathing threats and murder against Christians. Little did he know, we would soon join them as one of their chief spokespeople. Jesus stopped him on the way to Damascus, called his name, stole his sight, and gave him a new mission. Saul, who became Paul, converted, received his commission, and the rest, as they say, is history. His story is an example of Jesus taking the most odious breath and refreshing it. He did it with Paul; he does it with us.

King Saul's pride rendered him ineffective. His good looks and tall height could not compensate for his impatience, need to control, and ability to turn others into rivals. This sermon takes note of Saul's ascent and decline as it related to his pride, and draws implications for the ongoing struggle we have with pride.
