Praise God because of others

~Friday for Friends~

"Then I went to Syria and Cilicia. I was personally unknown to the churches of Judea that are in Christ. They only heard the report: “The man who formerly persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” And they praised God because of me." Galatians 1:21-24 (NIV)

How about you? Can you praise God for what He has done in other peoples' lives? Can you share what He has done in your life with others? 


  1. You know, it's so cool that instead of distrusting him and turning him away (which would've been a totally natural response), or even trying to get revenge, they praised God for the changes in Paul's life and accepted him. I don't know, I just think that's incredible. The power of the love and forgiveness of Christ :)


    1. Yes, definitely! There were quite good reasons to distrust Saul/Paul. But God's grace was so amazing to him, and it's awesome how others realized that!
