Would you be happy if you were in Paul’s position? As he realized the great opportunity he had to speak about his Lord and Savior, it made him happy! He relates his life as a Pharisee and then mentions the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Paul was now standing and being judged for the hope of their fathers. He once thought wrongly and persecuted many of the saints in Jerusalem, putting them in prison and consenting to their death. However, the Lord had His eye on this sinner and was going to change his life. One day, as he was going to Damascus to persecute Christians there, at midday he saw a light from heaven, shining round about him and he fell to the earth. A voice from heaven said, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?” What a shock it must have been to this religious man to realize that what he was doing was all wrong.
After Paul relates his God-given mission and the resurrection of Christ from the dead, Festus could not contain himself and told Paul that he was mad. Paul affirmed that he spoke words of truth and soberness and then turned to Agrippa, who said, “Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.” The reply, which the Apostle Paul gave, could be true only of a person who was fully dedicated to the Lord.
