“And I was still
unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ: but they only heard say, He that once persecuted us now preaches the faith of which he once made havoc; and they glorified God in me.” Galatians 1:22-24
WHAT’S YOUR REPUTATION?
DOES IT PRECEEED YOU? We all have a reputation-even if it’s to be a introvert, we are known by our repreputaion. The old Saul of the early chapters of Acts was a guy who had a reputation for being a zealous Jew who murdered Christans. He was merciless and he was relentless!
In fact, he was on his way to do such a thing one day when God literally blinded him, knocked him off his horse, and talked to him about these acts and
gloriously saved him! By the end of that trip, Saul had a new name, new calling and a new reputaion! After encountering Christ and experiencing salvation, his name was now Paul. Instead of killing Christians, he was now making Christians! His new reputation was in verse 24-t-“They glorified God in me!”
So, what’s your reputation? Do people glorify God because of the change that salvation had brought in you? Seriously, if you were on trial for being a Christian,would there even be enough
evidence to convict you?
Think about it!
