Blinded by the Light

As part of our sermon series in Acts 1-15 for church I’m preparing a sermon this week on Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. Here’s a neat little quote from a commentary I’m reading:

Saul is ‘forced by the Messiah’s light to recognise his own blindness and to receive his sight through him.’

(Peterson, quoting Tannehill, p303)

Which reminds me of this beautiful quote from CS Lewis:

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
