For the third time, Paul rejoices to share the story of his conversion. Verses 16–18 contain promises of the Lord that Paul had not previously expressed in the first two accounts (9:1–19; 22:6–21). As Paul tells his story, his joy in the Lord expands, radiating outward, pushing back the pressing in of his persecutors. Paul verifies what John teaches in his first letter, 4:4: He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
May this final listening to Paul’s conversion bring the same inner energy to you, as you gather the story of God’s gracious dealings with you into one place. Be centered in your story. It becomes alive again in your telling and humble retelling, for the glory of the name of Jesus.
