You know....it just doesn’t matter how “right” you live. People who don’t have Jesus in their hearts will condemn you no matter what!
Yesterday, it was pointed out that Paul was still living as a devout man according to the law. He was paying for his and his friends vows in the temple (vs 24) and he purified himself (vs 26). Yet, He was victim to people’s assumptions that he was not living according to the law.
Poor guy.... I bet he was experiencing a gamete of emotions!
But, at least His experience and how he dealt with it, helps us!
In today’s culture we may be accused of untruths as well. It’s great that we have Paul’s example. He just stuck with his testimony of how he met Jesus and how that changed his life. That’s all he needed to say and that’s all we need to say as well.
