Intercepted By Grace

Galatians 1:24
God has a way of getting people’s attention. Take the apostle Paul: summa cum laude among Jewish scholars, impeccable credentials, zealous observer of Jewish tradition. Paul was convinced that killing Christians was a noble service to God, and he took his gruesome assignment seriously. So how does the former terrorist of the church change his mind? Did he just wake up one morning and say, “I wonder what it would be like to be an apostle of grace“? That’s the miracle of being intercepted by grace. No one can look at the life of Paul—or any believer transformed by the gospel—and not see God‘s glory. Paul testified that when people heard his radical testimony, they didn’t glorify him. All they could do is glorify God. This week, pray that others will see God in you and be amazed at his glory. Grace must find expression in life, otherwise it is not grace.
