Paul was a zealous fighter of Christianity; but Jesus by Himself, was more than enough to bring a radical conversation to Paul. And He is all any of us need.
"And it came to pass, that as I made my journey, and was come nigh unto Damascus about noon, suddenly there shone from heaven a great light round about me. And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me? And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And He said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest…And I said, What shall I do, Lord? And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go…" (Acts 22:6-10).
Paul never forgot this experience, for he retold the story time and time again throughout his ministry. What a mighty savior we have! The following are just some of the descriptions of our Lord:
"The Lion of the tribe of Judah" (Gen. 49:10);
"The Angel of the Lord" (Ex. 3:2);
"The Captain of the Lord’s Host" (Josh. 5:14)
"The Root and the Offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning Star" (Rev. 22:16).
"Thou shalt call His name JESUS; for He shall save His people from their sins" (Matt. 1:21);
"they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us" (Matt. 1:23).
"In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with God, and the WORD was God" (John 1:1).
"Come unto Me" (Matt. 11:28).
"I am the living bread" (John 6:51);
"I am the Light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12);
"I am the Good Shepherd" (John 10:11),
"For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10);
"I am the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6).
Thank you Lord for being all I need.
