徒 Acts 22:17-21
17 “后来，我回到耶路撒冷，在殿里祷告的时候，魂游象外， 18 看见主对我说：‘你要快快离开耶路撒冷，因为你为我作的见证，他们是不会接受的。’ 19 我说：‘主啊，他们知道我曾把信你的人监禁起来，又在各会堂拷打他们， 20 并且你的见证人司提反受害流血的时候，我也亲自在场，表示同意，并且为杀他的人看守衣服。’21 他对我说：‘你走吧，我要派你到远方的外族人那里去。’”
17 “When I returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance 18 and saw the Lord speaking to me. ‘Quick!’ he said. ‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because the people here will not accept your testimony about me.’ 19 “‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these people know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. 20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’ 21 “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’ ”
If anyone relies on his own wisdom or stubbornly rejects what God commands, his arrogance will rightly be condemned. But God allows his faithful servants the privilege of humbly raising things that could call them back from the desire to obey, so that they may be free of hindrances and devote themselves wholly to God’s service.
