Acts 9:15-16 ESV
15 But the Lord said to him, “Go, for he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel. 16 For I will show him how much he must suffer for the sake of my name. ” 

Suffer here means to be acted upon. God will show Paul what to do, his sacrifice for the Lord. No longer would he persecute Jesus, but proclaim Him. A cup poured out for Christ.

Jesus is our Paschal Lamb, the Suffering Servant, the Son Of God.

πάσχω, πάθω, πένθω * paschō pathō penthō * pas'-kho, path'-o, pen'-tho *
