What could the following people have in common: a member of the Hitler Youth; a young couple pregnant before marriage; a woman and a chaplain in an ICU; a bride pouring communion wine all over her gown; a long-haul trucker baptized in a birdbath; a college kid arrested for being disorderly; and a Holocaust survivor meeting his rescuer after sixty-five years?
Saint Paul would make the list. Writing after his conversion, Paul explains, "For I am the least of the apostles because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God, I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain" (1 Cor 15:9-10). This good news of God is the treasure ordinary Christians have proclaimed and shared throughout history.
