So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”
Saul had a blank check from the chief priest to capture and interrogate Christians. On the way to Damascus to carry out his charge, he was struck down in the road by a white light and a voice – the voice of Jesus.
Obviously, he had no power against the Lord.
“Lord, what do You want me to do?” is Saul’s submission to the Lordship of Jesus and his own salvation.
When he looked up, he was blind.
He would later pen to the Corinthian’s these words – their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. 2 Cor 3:14
Saul has been blind all this time.
Jesus quoted Isaiah when He said, “Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing and their eyes they have closed.” Matt 13:14-15
Certainly Saul is about to have an eye-opening experience!
Many people today are like Saul. Their eyes and ears are closed to the Gospel of Christ. They don’t hear because they choose not to. They don’t see because they choose not to.
Open your eyes, ears, and heart to the message of Christ and experience a new life of seeing and hearing everything in a different light.
