Light Reflection-Acts 9:3 Saul’s Conversion

February 13th, 2023

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Light Reflection is from Acts 9:3.

As Saul neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?

Saul asked, “Who are you, Lord?”

This was the reply: “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

Saul was on a journey to persecute Christians, but Jesus stopped him in his tracks. The light that flashed from heaven blinded his physical sight for a period of time, but Jesus opened His eyes to the truth of who He is.

He would become an instrument of grace to open the eyes of the Gentiles and turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Saul’s change of heart is a reminder of how suddenly and significantly Jesus can turn a life in a different direction.

This Light Reflection inspires us to respond to the voice of Jesus when He calls our name in the Year to Shine.
