The Power of a Personal Testimony

As the Romans are hauling who they thought was an Egyptian rebel who led 4ooo assassin's, Paul speaks up, Nope, Im a peaceful Jewish citizen.  Check this out, he then wants to speak to those who, minutes before, wanted to kill him.  Not to stir them up, but because he truly loved them with the love Jesus shown to him.  He speaks in perfect Hebrew:
Acts 22:6“Now it happened, as I journeyed and came near Damascus at about noon, suddenly a great light from heaven shone around me. 7 And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?’ 8 So I answered, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And He said to me, ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting.

Paul was a religious Jew, as they.  He was sent to Damascus, after the believers, to have them killed!  God met him on his way, stopped him.  Who am I to fight God any longer?  Jesus asked him why are you persecuting Me?  God takes persecution of His church personal.  His answer is great, who are You LORD?  At this point, I think he answered his own question.  Jesus makes it clear, Im Jesus, the Nazarene, and you are persecuting Me!  It was this dusty road, God opened up Sauls heart and revealed to him his depravity!  His testimony is amazing, but our testimony is just as amazing if we acknowledge our sinful lives and repent for our sin.  If we see Jesus for who He is.  Never underestimate one of your greatest tools to evangelism, your personal testimony!

The power of a life changed by our Lord and Savior ❤️ speaks more than words can ever say. Words empowered by the Holy Spirit have the power of lightning bolts, piercing straight to the heart.
