Acts 22

Acts 22

“As I was on my way and drew near to Damascus, about noon a great light from heaven suddenly shone around me. And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ And I answered, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ And he said to me, ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting.’  Now those who were with me saw the light but did not understand the voice of the one who was speaking to me. And I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’” Acts 22:6

Acts 22 records the event where Paul finds himself at the crossroads with the Lord of lords: Jesus Christ. It was dramatic to say the least. Paul is stunned and driven down by the force of light shining from heaven. He’s instinctively aware that this moment is a Divine appointment. In response he cries out “‘Who are you, Lord?’

God’s reply was astonishing, “I am Jesus, whom you persecute.”

At that moment Paul bows his knee to the Creator of the Universe and the Savior of all Souls. Paul’s first beckoning question is, “Lord, what will you have me to do?”

Can you recall the moment you gave your life to Christ? Perhaps it wasn’t as dramatic as Paul’s experience. Nevertheless, it was a miracle in and of itself. Spiritually speaking, nothing could be greater than the salvation of a soul, no matter how one may experience it.

Have you made the decision to follow Jesus? Or as Paul would say, have you had your Damascus experience? If not, what are you waiting for?
