'Who are you, Lord?' Saul asked. 'I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,' he replied. 'Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.' The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.
The first thing we see from this passage is that, when someone persecutes you as a Christian, they are not persecuting you but Jesus. Notice in the first part of the passage, that Jesus asks Saul why he was persecuting Jesus not the individuals he was searching for. We also see that God can step in and take care of the situation. It probably gets your attention when Jesus speaks and you lose your sight. Another important thing is that some people can be right next to the working of God and see nothing. You see, the men with Saul heard a voice but saw nothing. There are many people today that are so near but yet so far from God and his working.
