Galatians 1: 23-24 – “He who used to persecute us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy.” And they glorified God because of me.
Your Discipleship Minute
We all have a past. It is filled with things that we enjoy sharing as well as things we would rather keep secret. Too many things we would rather keep secret.
But God doesn’t save us from our sins for our own glory. He saves us because it brings Him glory.
So when we try to hide our sinful past from other Christians and the world because they may judge us and make us feel bad about our sins, what we are really doing is trying to make ourselves sound better than we really are.
And that robs God of the glory that He so rightly deserves!
Only when we admit and share our greatest shame can people see the great power of God working in our lives.
Stop worrying about your reputation and what people will think of you and start concerning yourself with making God famous and giving Him glory for the great things He has done in your life.
Share an embarrassing secret about your past that God has delivered you from today. Be sure to give Him the glory for delivering you from your sin.
