The Apostle Paul, a great man in his day,

Persecuted Christians who followed the Way.

Then why would God chose a man like him

To reveal the Mystery He held within.

God knew his determination to follow through

Whatever it was God gave him to do.

To reveal to Believers the Gospel of Grace,

Given by the Glorified Christ, face to face.

On the road to Damascus he encountered a bright light ,

Fell to the ground, for three days lost his sight.

Then sent to his people with the Good News,

They were saved from the Law, no longer Jews.

A new Race of people, born from above

Whatever they do must be done out of Love.

This was not good news to their ears,

The root of the Law went back too many years.

They were not prepared to abolish the Law,

It was their security, it made them secure.

With hearts waxed cold to what Paul had to say

Israel set aside for an undisclosed day.

The Good News taken to the Gentiles instead,

They would now hear what had to be said.

The Law fulfilled by Jesus the Man,

Who died in God’s heart before the world began.

Chosen before the foundation of the earth,

His death would bring life and another birth.

Do you know what it means to have Christ in you ?

In God’s eyes Christ is me and Christ is you

This is the essence of all Paul’s teaching,

To many ears this Message is reaching.

Only God knows who will embrace this fact

And those whose old knowledge they’re prepared to retract.

Born again with the Incorruptible Seed,

Christ’s life as mine is all I need.

So thank you Father God for your Apostle Paul,

Who brought the Truth that Christ is my All.
