20 Oct Acts 9:3-4
3 As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
Can you imagine? A huge flash of light knocking you to the ground AND a voice from heaven talking to you? The Bible tells us that the men traveling with Saul were so stunned they were left speechless! Do you remember whose voice Saul heard? It was Jesus! What do you think Saul was thinking? Saul wasn’t hurting any ONE man but the voice said, “Why are you persecuting me?” Jesus cares about the church and takes it personally when someone hurts the church.
