He & I

HE & I

Acts 22:7 “I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, “Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?”

So Paul has begun his defence to the Jewish crowd and gives his testimony of what happened on the Damascus Road. It is a repeat of what Luke wrote in Acts 9.

Except it isn’t actually the same of course. Luke wrote “He fell to the ground …” and Paul is now speaking of himself, “I fell to the ground … a voice say to me …”

Is what people say about you the same as what you say? An autobiography and a biography are not the same, though some autobiographies are ghost-written, but a memoir is different to both of them.

Have you ever listened to someone talk and you become confused because the detail isn’t the same as you remember? You know there is an inaccuracy because you were there! Can history be wrong?

Here Paul and Luke are agreeing. “He fell, I fell, a voice spoke to him, a voice spoke to me.”

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

This is my story.

I fell in surrender and submission of my life to Jesus.

I heard the gospel message, I was a sinner and He came and rescued me.

This is it my friends, your story.

Let people write this about you because this is what happened.

Let your He and I be the same.

Protect history.
