Gathering in Christ

Acts 9:9
And [Paul] was three days without sight, and neither ate not drank].

Saul was a Pharisee of the Pharisees, a man of integrity and conscientiousness… He was conscientious when he hounded the followers of Christ to death.  Then came disaster, when all Saul’s world was flung to pieces. God arrested him [and changed him entirely -- including his name -- from Saul to Paul].  But out of the inscrutable disaster and upset, God brought Paul into a personal experience of Himself. The stride of God is never anything less than union with Himself.
