Galatians 1:13-17

13 For you have heard of my previous way of life in Judaism, how intensely I persecuted the church of God and tried to destroy it. 14 I was advancing in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers. 15 But when God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased 16 to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles, my immediate response was not to consult any human being. 17 I did not go up to Jerusalem to see those who were apostles before I was, but I went into Arabia. Later I returned to Damascus.

One response to “Galatians 1:13-17

  1. Paul tells how he was advancing and gaining notoriety in his own strength and by his own hand, but all for naught because he was against the plan of God. But God, in His mercy, called him by grace, and revealed Christ to him and in him, so that Christ could be glorified. He tells of God’s plan in that he was set aside both from the foundation of the world and from his very birth for the purposes of God.

    His response when he received revelation was to go and do the will of the Father and to drop his previous plans and ambitions and to turn from that which he had invested his early life in.
