Knowing who he is reveals His ways and my ways.
Acts 26:15 ““Then I asked, ‘Who are you, Lord?’ “ ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,’ the Lord replied.”
Paul couldn’t answer the question of Jesus, “why do you persecute me?” He couldn’t because he didn’t know that a) Jesus was alive and b) that his persecution of the followers of Christ is a persecution against Christ. So he thought of his own question to ask the questioner, “Who are you Lord?”
Paul didn’t know. He was blinded to the knowledge of Christ.
Throughout important stages of my life I have asked, “Who are you, Lord?” I ask because though I know He is alive I didn’t know what He was doing with my life. In my pursuit of knowing who He is I then understand His ways. My drawing closer to Him reveals what He is doing in me. This is my question to ask and me alone.
‘Who are you, Lord?’ is also a discovery of knowing who I am and what I am doing. Paul didn’t know he was persecuting Christ, but after he asked the question, he did. I want to know my ways or more importantly what He thinks of my ways, ‘who are you Lord?’
