“Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?” Acts 9:4

Saul’s conversion on the Damascus road took place many years after Jesus’ death and resurrection. When Jesus confronted Saul, he was “breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples” (v.1). Yet Jesus asks, “why do you persecute me?” The fact that Jesus lives in His disciples is not some theological theory but here we see a very practical application of this truth. This is seen again in verse 5 when Jesus says, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting”. When Christians are persecuted Jesus feels it too. Christianity is not about nice theories to believe but it is about taking Jesus at His word and living it out in practical ways.

It’s not only in times of persecution that Jesus feels with us. Isaiah 63:9 tells us that, “In all their distress He too was distressed” and Hebrews 4:15 “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses”. Because Jesus lives in us, He knows what we go through.

So we never have to feel alone with our problems or feel that no one understands. Even if the people around us don’t understand, we have a high priest who goes through every experience with us. Sometimes we may feel like we are alone but rather than trust our feelings we need to take Jesus at His Word and believe that He is indeed living in us.
