Saul Earns Credibility
Bible Basis: Acts 9:19b-31
Bible Truth: Saul's bold and powerfulpreaching caused the numbers of the church to increase.
Memory Verse: "And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues, that his is the son of God" (Acts 9:20).
Lesson AIM: That we will RECALL Saul's acceptance as a Christian and the reward of his zeal in preaching about Jesus; EXAMINE the church's willingness to accept and meaningfully include in the body of Christ those whose background is perceived as being suspect and encourage their bold witness about the change in their lives; and CELEBRATE those whose lives were transformed by Christ and then became bold witnesses for His cause.
