When Your Wrong Is Revealed

Picture yourself as Saul of Tarsus. You have been invading the homes of disciples of Christ, taking them to prison, beating them and torturing them, and helping in their deaths, because you believe they have perverted the religion of God.
Then you travel to Damascus from Jerusalem to find more of your Jewish brethren who have converted to this new way of religion, but then the Christ Himself appears to you, asking why you are persecuting Him, although you do not realize yet that it is the Lord Jesus, the Christ of God.
After He asks why you are persecuting Him, this happens, “And [Saul] said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ Then the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads'” (Acts 9:5).
The moment you hear the words, “I am Jesus…” you already know how wrong you have been, and the guilt that would shoot through your body would make you tremble as you never had before.
This confrontation completely broke down Saul, and made him into a new man.
What would it take to make you a full-fledged disciple of Jesus Christ?
