Acts, Chapter 9, verse 31
The church throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria was at peace. It was being built up and walked in the fear of the Lord, and with the consolation of the Holy Spirit it grew in numbers.
The church was at peace because the apostles trusted in the power of God and accepted Saul as Paul. Saul was the major threat to the fledgling church until Christ stopped Saul in his tracks.
For those who do not fear God let us pray that Christ stops us knocks us to the ground and delivers us as He did Saul.
Christ chose Saul because he was a man first.
The great need at this hour is manly men. We want not goody-goody piety; we have too much of it. We want men who will do right, though the heavens fall, who believe in God, and who will confess Him. Rev. W. J. Dawson.
Great men of the bible realize that we are both body and spirit. They took great care of the body and honored God with the use of it. Our examples are Moses, Sampson, David, Saint Joseph and even Jesus Himself.
The body of an athlete and the soul of a sage; these are what we require to be happy. Voltaire.
