A light from heaven
At midday, O king, along the road I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me.
Acts 9:3; 22:6; 26:13.
We can clearly conclude that the turnaround occurred after he encountered the light from heaven (Christ Jesus). This light corrects a person's mindset or conviction (Acts 26:9), positions a person on the right path on which he oughts to walk, and enables the person to fulfill his assignment on earth.
Without an encounter with this light from heaven, a person will cause great harm to the body of Christ, even if they claim to be born again. Where the light is dim, people are controlled by their cultural values and try to suppress the truth of the gospel, elevating culture above truth. What Paul used to do without his encounter with the light from heaven was a promotion of "the traditions of his fathers" (Galatians 1:14). Yet he was fully persuaded the it was God's eork, and he did outperformed all his peers, with so much obsession!
A zeal without knowledge is weapon of mass destruction. It destroys what it seeks to promote and promote! Let the light from heaven flood your heart and mind, and be zealous for Good works, for God ordained you for Good works in Christ Jesus!
