Ugly to Beautiful

This morning there were dark clouds in the east. The sun was just beginning to rise, but ugly, jagged clouds hid the sunrise. About 20 minutes later, I looked in my rearview mirror to see one of the most beautiful sunrises I had ever seen! The white clouds were edged with pink, blue, orange and purple. It was awesome!
God changed an ugly sky into a beautiful one. Only He can do that! And only God can change an ugly life of sin into a beautiful life of Christian love and service. Our Bible Reading today tells us what happened to Paul. Paul loved God, but he did not believe that Jesus was God’s Son. One day, Jesus appeared to Paul, and Paul’s life was changed. After that experience, Paul followed and served Jesus.
Maybe you think that your life is ugly and filled with sin. God can change that. He can forgive your sins and make you one of His children. Be like Paul. Ask God to forgive you, be baptized and become a new person in Christ.
