23 They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” 24 And they praised God because of me.
1:24 Paul’s changed life had brought praise from those who saw him or heard about him. His new life had astonished them. They had praised God because only God could have turned this zealous persecutor of Christians into a Christian himself. We may not have had as dramatic a change as Paul, but still, our new lives should honor God in every way. When people look at you, do they recognize that God has made changes in you? If not, perhaps you are not living as you should. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
This should be every Christian’s example; everyone we know and others around us should say and see how much Jesus Christ changed our lives. I, like Paul, know what Christ has done to my life and I pray every day that Christ uses my life to show others the life of peace, joy, and love that Jesus gives to me. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and let Jesus show in your life as a changed man.
