Scripture:   Galatians (NIV) 1:22  I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ.

23  They only heard the report:  “The man who formerly persecuted us in now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy. 

24  And they praised God because of me. 

Observation:    Paul was writing to the church in Galatia and giving some of his own testimony.  What a change Jesus had brought in Paul’s life.  It was a dramatic change, one that could be easily seen by people around him.  Once they feared Paul as he set about persecuting the church; now they praised God because of him. 

Application:    Now there are two worthy goals for my life.  First: I want God to receive praise from me.  And second: I want God to receive praise from others because of me.   

Prayer:   Lord,  What a special joy it is to know that something I do causes others to praise you!  It makes my heart smile.   Amen
