No copies

RE Verse reading–Acts 9:1-22, 26-28 (day one) “As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him.  He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?’ ” (vs 3-4)  It is an amazing story.  Amazingly true.  Who can challenge Paul’s testimony to these facts?  He was there.  This event changed him forever, and the world too.  A God of infinite mercy and creativity working to bring a man to repentance and faith.  Why don’t stories like this happen more often in our day?  Perhaps they do!  Different details to be sure.  Different measures of supernatural intervention, but still the story of God’s touch that brings conversion through faith.  Perhaps you have no tale of a blinding light or calling voice.  If however, you have moved from non-faith to faith, and this by the hand/help of God, then you have a miracle story all your own.  There are no copies.  God is too creative to repeat himself.
