A Life Transformed

A Life Transformed
(Acts 9:1-19)

I. God is able to transform the most unlikely of sinners.
A. Salvation does not depend on the will of man, but rather on the sovereign will and power of God. (Philippians 3:5; Acts 9:15-16; Romans 9:16)
B. Salvation does not depend on the merits of man, but rather on God’s gift of grace. (Romans 3:10; 8:8; Ephesians 2:8-9; Philippians 1:29; Acts 5:31; 11:18; 2 Timothy 2:25)

II. When God transforms a sinner, there are certain marks of genuine faith. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 5:3-6; Colossians 1:23; 3:5-6; 2 Peter 1:5-11)
A. Conviction of Sin
B. Humbling from Our Pride
C. Obedience to the Lordship of Christ
D. Transformation from Spiritual Blindness to Sight
E. Seeking the Lord in Prayer
F. Fellowship with the Lord’s People
G. Filled with the Holy Spirit

III. God uses transformed sinners as His chosen instruments in the cause of the gospel. (2 Timothy 2:21)
