God introduced the Apostle Paul as the “pattern” for other believers to examine and follow. In what way was Paul our pattern? What is the means of eternal salvation? As we look at Paul, it is not based on lineage, intelligence, signs and wonders, or even belief in Jesus Christ that saves us to heaven. The pattern of Paul shows that we are saved to heaven solely by Jesus Christ directly overpowering the heart of dead alien sinners by his sovereign grace.
