Acts 26, King Agrippa said to Paul, “Go ahead. Tell us your story.” So Paul, with many gestures, presented his defense: “I am fortunate, King Agrippa,” he began, “to be able to present my answer before you, Now please listen patiently! “ I was given a thorough Jewish training from my earliest childhood in Tarsus and later at Jerusalem, and I lived accordingly. The real reason behind their accusations is something else it is because I am looking forward to the fulfillment of God’s promise made to our ancestors. I used torture to try to make Christians everywhere curse Christ. I was so violently opposed to them that I even hounded them in distant cities in foreign lands. “I was on such a mission to Damascus, armed with the authority and commission of the chief priests, when one day a light from heaven brighter than the sun shone down on me and my companions. We all fell down, and I heard a voice speaking to me in Hebrew, ‘Paul, Paul, why are you persecuting me? You are only hurting yourself.’ “‘Who are you, sir?’ I asked. "I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting. Now stand up! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and my witness. You are to tell the world about this experience and about the many other occasions when I shall appear to you. And I will protect you from your own people and the Gentiles. I am going to send you to the Gentiles to open their eyes so they may repent and live in the light of God instead of in Satan’s darkness, so that they may receive forgiveness for their sins and God’s inheritance along with all people everywhere whose sins are cleansed away, who are set apart by faith in me.’ FRIENDS, PAUL SHARED HIS SALVATION STORY WITH EVERYONE AND WE TOO MUST SHARE OUR STORY! 2 Thessalonians 2:14, Through us he told you the Good News. Through us he called you to share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
