We all remember the apostle Paul, the man formerly called Saul who persecuted the church to death, a man with many academic degrees, educated at the feet of the most prominent teacher of the time called Gamaliel, besides all this he was a Pharisee and was a Man too important at that time, however, there is nothing impossible for God and when our Lord has a plan with someone no matter who he is, He fulfills it because He fulfills it.
Even Paul, being all that we have mentioned before, God makes him a faithful follower of Jesus, and already that Saul of Tarsus has to stop persecuting the church because he now understands the divine purpose in the church of Christ.
The apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians:
7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
