The apostle Paul took many journeys in the course of his ministry, but in reality his whole life was a spiritual journey that continually formed and transformed him. The same is true for all Christians. And a key point in that journey, a point that must be recognized by any true follower of Christ, is the point of conversion. This is that moment when the true God collides with the gods we have created for ourselves and we realize that our gods are too weak to change our hearts. Then the miracle of spiritual light comes to us and we see the truth about Jesus, about ourselves, and about the church. And once we know that truth we embrace new, selfless relationships and allow God to do His transformative work in us.
