The importance of Paul’s conversion


God had very special work for Paul to do. The gospel of Jesus Christ had to be spread to all parts of the world, and Paul was God’s chosen instrument to make that happen.


After his conversion and baptism, Paul began to proclaim that Jesus is the Christ. He spoke to very many people about the gospel, including kings, rulers, Jewish and Roman leaders, and other people who had never heard the gospel before – even those who lived in faraway nations.


Paul received a lot of revelations and instructions from God and was able to write them down very clearly so that Christians and non-Christians could understand the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are benefiting from Paul’s writing today because he wrote many of the books of the New Testament.
